Before you buy any property in Louisiana, you must make certain that the seller has clear title.
This is a detailed examination of Louisiana, local Parish and city public records, deeds, court records, property and name indexes, and other public documents. This is to verify the seller’s right to transfer ownership to you.
Our title service will uncover any and all title defects in or encumbrances on the property, such as unpaid taxes or liens, outstanding mortgages, or judgments. We will also research if there are public utilities easements, or any other restrictions limiting your use or enjoyment of the property.
Before closing, our title services agent will notify all parties of the steps that need to be taken to ensure title is clear, such as securing satisfactions to be recorded, collecting funds to pay off judgments, taxes, liens, warrants, and mortgages, correcting any flaws in the deed, and taking any other necessary measures.
At the closing, our title services agent will further proofread all documents to be recorded, ensure the appropriate funds have been collected for such recording, and undertake to record all necessary documents.
