Although you probably will not interact directly with me as part of your real estate transaction, I am the first line of defense in ensuring clear title for many transactions facilitated by Midland Title. As a title examiner, I review and summarize the legal history real estate. I review chain of ownership, past transactions, liens, encumbrances, and any other legal issues that might affect a property's title. My primary objective is to create a comprehensive report (title abstract, title search), which provides a clear and concise overview of the property’s history. While I do not work directly with Midland’s customers, I do play a critical role in ensuring your property title is free and clear of any liens or defects prior to closing.
I’m excited to answer some frequently asked questions to help demystify my role at Midland Title.
