Meet the Title Abstractor. He is an expert DETECTIVE, searching through public records to determine the history of ownership of a piece of real estate. The abstractor develops an abstract of title, which is a synopsis of all of the information gathered, including ownership of the property; previous mortgages judgments and liens; unpaid taxes and more.

Providing this initial documentation to the title underwriter and the lender gives them an understanding of what must be done in the coming weeks to make sure a “clean” title is handed to the new buyer.

Her job is to resolve all issues, clear up any discrepancies, and get all the paperwork and documents in  proper order to meet the requirements of the title company and the lender.
