Our Title Search Services


Residential Title Searches

Each title search is like a puzzle, and all records and documents that our searchers retrieve and review brings the picture into
focus and completes the puzzle.

We thoroughly investigate each property in order to provide you with all of the information needed to determine relevant interests, regulations, and other history concerning the property in question.

Every title search should primarily answer three questions:

  1. Does the seller have a true and unrestricted saleable and marketable interest in the property?
  2. What kind of restrictions or exceptions pertain to the use of the property or land?
  3. What, if any, mortgages or liens exist on the property that will need to be paid off at closing?

Residential title searches are performed for a purchase, a refinance, a potential investment, as well as possible other reasons, and typically are performed in order for title insurance to be applied to the property. Whatever the purpose, Elite Abstract completes title searches that you can trust.

Our standard residential search is a 30 year search, with pricing based on a Tier 1 or Tier 2 copy package:

Tier 1 includes pertinent lien copies, 24 month deed(s), plat, property card, taxes.

Tier 2 includes ALL copies of ALL documents reported.

Send order requests to: orders@eliteabstract.com, or fill out the form on this page with any information you are able to provide, and we will take care of it.


Commercial Title Searches

Elite Abstract routinely handles all types of commercial property searches. Due to the nature and complexity of commercial title searches, the fees and turn-around times are quoted on a case by case basis.

As a result of this process, the more information you can provide up front, the faster we can give you a quote and get started!

Elite Abstract is so committed to providing you with excellent search results that we have an entire department dedicated just to commercial searches. This ensures that you receive quality results at a fair price and turn time.
