What is a Municipal Lien Search and why do you need one?

A municipal lien search discloses all unrecorded municipal liens, utility balances, special assessments, code violations and open or expired permits that are associated with the property you are purchasing.  A title search only reveals recorded instruments that pertain to a property and it does not disclose the unrecorded municipal matters that could result in a lien on your property if not paid and/or resolved prior to or at the time of closing.

Our easy to read checklist takes the guess work out of what needs to be addressed prior to or at closing.  Our team of professionals with over 50 years of combined experience will take the stress out of researching and obtaining the necessary information for you, allowing you to focus on your closings.  Click here to view our turnaround times.

Our expert Estoppel Department has taken the guesswork out of Homeowners Association research.  Our proprietary database contains the most current information for Associations, Management Companies and the Attorneys that represent them. Our Summary reports provide you with detailed breakdowns of any outstanding amounts including past due fees (according to Florida Statute), violations and/or collection status of each property. You will always know if transfer fees or buyer approvals are necessary prior to closing.
