Title Review

Trust Our Real Estate Team to Verify Property Ownership and Claims

In order to complete a real estate transaction, someone must perform a title search. While a title company can perform a title search and review, they’re not permitted to offer any legal advice or counsel should they find an issue. And should the title search reveal problems, you’ll need to hire an attorney, which can cause delays and increase expenses.

Working with one of our real estate attorneys from the start, however, protects your interests. When we handle the entire transaction, you’re guaranteed complete representation from start to finish.

Our team of professionals acts as the title examiner and has the skill to identify and resolve any issues they discover during the review. They take a deep dive into historical and current information to determine whether the property title is clear. The team looks for issues like:

  • Deeds and ownership transfers
  • Easements or encroachments
  • Errors or defects in the conveyance
  • Estate, will, and/or trust issues
  • Issues with the chain of title
  • Potential claims and/or liens filed against the property

If we find a problem — like a chain of title — we’ll resolve the issue and, if necessary, provide legal representation should the dispute go to court.

While Pennsylvania doesn’t require that you hire an attorney to conduct a title review, when you work with one of our title attorneys, we work to protect your investment.
