How Title Searches Work? (Step Wise)

A title search arbitrates whether a property has a clean title or has errors in public records, which could lead to an incomplete transaction or financial loss for the purchaser. A title search is outsourced to a title search firm or an attorney by the potential buyer. A lender can also take the initiative to conduct a title search to verify property ownership. A title search takes place before applying for a loan or any other method of credit that accepts property as collateral. For a better understanding, the process of title search is given below.

Step 1- Research: The first step of the title search is to go through public records online on your state's website for the corroboration of the ownership of the property. 

Step 2- Tax Records: The property's tax records cement the ownership rights if the taxes were paid on time. Analysing the tax history will help you understand the real estate climate. Every state has a property tax portal to help you ensure everything runs smoothly.

Step 3- Clear Chain of Title: Make sure that the name on the deed matches the seller. You can trace up to 50-70 years to ensure everything is clear in ownership. This also helps to affirm that there won't be a third-party claim on the ownership of the property. Make sure all requirements under the Registration Act of 1908 have been met.

Step 4- Abstract of Title: Read through the summary (abstract) of the estate containing the history, foreclosures, if any, tax liens and other information imperative for the sale or purchase of the property. The Land Department can help you prepare the required documents to check and establish the proper chain of title. Make sure you check the abstract in the latest deed before you start the negotiation process.

Step 5- Document Your Research: If you haven't already, hire a lawyer who could help you with preparing a legal document of your findings, chain of title, tax history and any other important information. If there are any encumbrances, your attorney can help you through them.

How Do Title Searches Identify Who Owns A Property? (Step Wise)

How Long Does a Title Search Take to Complete?

The time taken to complete title searches depends on the state and the complexity of the property. However, in most cases, title searches can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. Since the land records in India are decentralised, the processing speed depends on the states having the smoothest land record systems.

If the property has variables complicating the process, the title search will take much time. If the concerned property has had various owners and is not from the same family, the verification process would take more time to ensure that the property belongs to the current owner and has no involvement of any third party.

If your state doesn't have records or acquiring the records is tiresome, your title search will be delayed. If your state of enquiry has digital records, your process will be seamless.
