Domestic Relations and Patriot Act searches are mandatory and conducted by the title company. I believe that Domestic Relations is required by the State of PA and Dom. Rel. required by the Federal government. These searchs look for records of delinquent child support and possible terrorist activity. The searches are generally charged at a set fee per person, and are required of all parties to the transaction, both Buyer/s & Seller/s.
