These folks here are Realtors, not attorneys. Your question will have to be directed to an attorney. Especially since there is no "one size fits all" answer to your specific situation. The attorney will want your full story, and she / he will need to see the documents in question.
If you are the transferee, and you have an owners title of policy, your title insurer may be able to advise you, If you don't like the title insurance company answer, you don't have to stop there, but you should probably start with the title company.
I will venture out far enough to opine that a "transfer of title" does not necessarily extinguish all debts and liens against a property;, a good title policy should reduce many of those risks.
