What is an abstract?
An abstract of title is a written report that briefly summarizes the various recorded documents affecting the ownership of a property. A search is conducted to determine whether the seller in fact owns the property and has clear title. Some examples of items that may be found in a search would be easements, deeds, mortgages, liens, judgments, tax liens/warrants and real property taxes. Part of the process is to check for gaps in ownership, clouds on title that may exist and review the legal descriptions for accuracy. In addition, a tax search performed to confirm the municipality does not have a lien on the property as well.
