What Is a Title Search?

If you are asking “What is a Title Search” or “what does a Title Search have to do with my foreclosure?” The simple answer is that a title search can uncover evidence of illegal foreclosure practices. Under California foreclosure law, a lender must record a notice of default and notice of trustee sale on the title. All foreclosure notices must have specific dates and amounts providing deadlines for payment of arrears, amounts owed, and the contact information for the trustee handling the foreclosure sale. Our firm searches title to see if your lender is breaking the law or violating any requirements of the California Home Owner Bill of Rights [HOBR – SB 900].

If you are facing foreclosure, or you have fallen behind on mortgage payments, our foreclosure lawyers will conduct a property title search to better understand whether your lender has engaged in any illegal foreclosure practices under the state laws of California. Common illegal practices include failure to stop the foreclosure process while reviewing an application for a loan modification; not assigning a single point of contact at the lender, not corresponding in writing, not reviewing applications in a timely manner, and denying requests for modifications due to procedural failures on the part of the lender [“no receipt of the documents that you sent”].

When researching your title, our foreclosure attorneys look for federal tax lien issues, senior and junior interested lien holders all prior recorded documents and signatures, and possible robo-signing problems that are commonly committed by big banks we have filed cases against.
