Title Search Basics

By
Real Estate Agent with ReMax/Lake Martin Properties

 

  • Title searches start with the most recent deed, searching the grantee's name (the person now holding title) backwards in time, until the deed when the grantee acquired the property is located.
  • That grantor's name is then searched backwards in time in the grantee's book to find when the grantor acquired title as a grantee.
  • This process continues, and over time, the property description involves larger and larger parcels of land.
  • Eventually, the searcher finds the U. S. Patent
