It's a lot easier to just use a title company, especially when it's a higher-end property that requires a major investment and you have money to spare. Before closing, you can purchase a good title insurance policy will cover all of possible title problems for the owner.
If you want to find out yourself, you can get an online title report within few minutes on website such as http://www.nextace.com or http://www.searchq.com

This is becoming more and more a frequent occurrence due to current environment, where so many previous home owners went into default, and left with violations or unpaid bills. However, you do not have to be a victim, or worry about these potential unrecorded liens, such as code, utilities, waste, and municipal liens -if your title company is also using a professional lien search company. Most reputable companies are using one, so check to be sure. They should be using one in conjunction with the title search if you are in a lien superior state. A good company currently performing this service is Property Debt Research in Florida.

I would assume that you have title insurance that was part of your closing costs. Ask the attorney at the title company for a professional opinion if you have doubts.
