A clean and clear title matters when buying and selling Highlands NC real estate. Title checks are a part of every real estate transaction. This essential step helps protect buyers by ensuring clear ownership exists. Additionally, a clear title means a clean home sale and transfer of ownership. Your Highlands NC REALTOR will get the title process going and will answer all of your questions.

What is a title?

A title refers to ownership of something. A title related to real estate is a lot like a title to a car. You cannot register a car without a title and you cannot buy and sell a home without a title. Title companies search title histories for properties to make sure that no issues will interfere with the sale of a property. Most Highlands NC property sales are simple when it comes to a title check. Others, however, have issues. One issue that may arise could include a lien. A lien against a property can exist for a variety of reasons, including unpaid utilities, unpaid loans leveraged against the home, or a mechanic’s lien.

Another issue on a title can be a Covenant of Record (COR). A COR is a promise tied to the property, perhaps this is an easement for a driveway or access across a property. The promise follows each sale unless an alternative agreement is somehow agreed to prior to a Highlands NC real estate transaction.
