Title examiners, abstractors, and searchers search real estate records, examine titles, or summarize pertinent legal or insurance documents or details for a variety of purposes. They may compile lists of mortgages, contracts, and other instruments pertaining to titles by searching public and private records for law firms, real estate agencies, or title insurance companies.
The online title examiner jobs are like real estate detectives, who ensure that real estate transactions are concluded legally by providing the clear title of the involved property.
In abstract art jobs, the abstractors search public records and examine titles to determine the legal condition of a property. They copy recorded documents that might affect the title to the property, such as mortgages, trust deeds, and contracts, and prepare summaries. Abstractors issue a policy that guarantees the title's legality.
An abstractor obtains maps delineating properties from county surveyors or assessors' offices, prepares reports describing any title encumbrances, outlines actions needed to clear titles, reads search requests to ascertain types of title evidence required, and enters into systems data to create new title records or update existing ones.
A job searcher can be self-employed or work for a title search and guarantee firm. A high school or associate degree, good research and investigation skills, and an understanding of legal terms are required for the job of title examiner. On-the-job training with experienced workers is needed.
A successful job searcher summarises legal or insurance information after investigating real estate records, examining titles, or summarising legal or insurance details.
