Title Examination

The attorneys at Moskowitz Mandell Salim & Simowitz are actively involved in title work whether it is a title examination where the attorneys provide in-depth examination of all public records that may affect title to real estate property or a title search involving the review of past deeds, wills, trusts and other documents to make sure the title has passed correctly to each new owner. We verify that all prior mortgages, judgments and liens have been paid in full so that the new purchaser acquires the property free and clear of any encumbrances.

Title to real estate property can be transferred by deeds, judgments, certificates of death of a joint tenant, foreclosures, quiet title actions and other recorded instruments.  Prior to any purchase of real estate property, the purchaser should obtain a reputable law firm to examine title to the property so that the purchaser can be assured that title is clear of any claims.  In addition, a title insurance policy is also available.  These are among the many areas where our attorneys can assist.
