It happens so much, you hate to see it: Someone agrees to purchase a house and upon moving in, they learn about a number of defects within the title. Quite often, people will purchase a home without any title search.

A title search is the process in which an individual investigates the title itself and discovers any flaws or defects associated with it. If left not searched, the defects and flaws of the title can present ramifications for the owner of the home which sits on the title.

Darren Findling explains the importance of a title search and provides recommendations as to how individuals should go about in securing themselves and their title.
