tug of war_edited-1You made it through the bidding war and won and now are on your way to owning your new home. With so many foreclosed homes coming to market banks are eager to get properties into the hands of new buyers who will once again send the banks a check every month. In the rush to get the papers signed; however, some new homeowners many find at closing they are not being passed a clear title.

Like a background check on a person, a title search company will research the property and tell you if it has any outstanding taxes or liens against it. It’s better to know that you have a clean title before you show up at the closing, excited to finally buy the home of your dreams, and discover liens and back taxes apply. An experienced real estate attorney can also help ensure that your title is free and clear and will inspect your understand your closing documents before you affix your signature and be bound to terms and conditions you were aware you were agreeing to.
