In most cases, a Realtor can do a quick search to see if there are any liens from loans on a property. Other liens can be identified by a preliminary title search by a title company. If you are getting ready to put your home on the market, we could order a preliminary title report for you at no cost – it would identify all known liens. Otherwise, you can search county records at the county recorder’s office or from their website – liens recorded prior to 1969 have to be searched in person as they are only on microfilm.
