To get accurate information you need to request a “preliminary title report” from a title company directly or get the preliminary title report via a real estate agent or a mortgage broker. It takes 1-4 days depending on the property and the title company. Agents can give you an instant report by looking the property profile on the internet. This instant report, known as a “profile” is not always accurate and is used only in a preliminary investigation. I recommend that you contact an experience real estate agent or mortgage broker in your area for quick service. You are not going to be charged and the agent/ broker who will be glad to help you because he/she would consider you as a potential future client.

Easiest way to do this is just do a title report. Here is a link to get this: section under title company, John Martinez Jr.

The free way is to go to the courthouse and pull the deed. Every instrument recorded against it will be in the records.

The safe way is as Moshon mentioned, order a title-exam. In Georgia, we request those from a title company (attorney). If this is something that you are buying with a mortgage, ALL will be revealed B4 your lender spends a dime.

If you are paying cash, assuming you are going to purchase title insurance, the title company will do the research.

Good luck,
