A title search is the process of examining public records to determine the legal ownership of a property and any liens, encumbrances, or restrictions that may affect it. It is typically conducted by a title company or a real estate attorney during the property buying or refinancing process. The title search helps ensure that the seller has the legal right to sell the property and that there are no hidden issues that could affect the buyer's ownership or use of the property.
