Title Issues

  • “Determine Ownership of Real Property (Past ownership and present ownership)” – This is commonly called an ‘Ownership and Encumbrance’ Report. We will search the public records on any particular parcel of real property in any of Florida’s 67 Counties and provide a detailed report showing the current owner(s) of record and all encumbrances (e.g. mortgages, liens, etc.). We will also provide copies of all of the documents evidencing this title.
  • Suits to Quiet Title – Our real estate title department, and our litigation department can analyze the current ownership of any parcel of real estate, and if appropriate, bring a lawsuit in a court having jurisdiction over property disputes, to establish a party's title to said real property against anyone and everyone, and thus, "quiet" any challenges or claims to the title.
