After your sales contract has been accepted, Yorktowne Settlement Company will search the public records to look for any problems with the home’s title. This search typically involves a review of land records going back many years.
Typically, more than 1/3 of all title searches reveal a title problem that Yorktowne Settlement Company will fix before you go to closing. For instance, a previous owner may have had minor construction done on the property, but never fully paid the contractor. Or the previous owner may have failed to pay local or state taxes. (See why you need title insurance for some other common title problems). Yorktowne Settlement Company seeks to resolve problems like these before you go to closing.
