If you've ever purchased a property, you know how frustrating those last-minute delays can be when your closing date is fast approaching. Often, delays are unavoidable, but there are many times where these delays could have been prevented. According to the National Association of Realtors, 9% of all closing delays are related to issues associated with the title of the property. For this reason, it is a good idea to perform a title search on the property to avoid delays in your closing.
Researching property history, especially Texas property history, can be a daunting task. Amongst Texas's 254 counties, there is a lot of variety in terms of how property records are recorded and archived. One of the first steps to understanding the work we do at Hollerbach & Associates is understanding the basics of each county's record-keeping techniques and documentation. We want our clients to be informed on how to interpret their property history to minimize risk.
At Hollerbach & Associates, when we say that We Know Texas BetterTM, it's more than just a catchy phrase — we mean it. With our large network of Texas professionals and our 35 years of experience in title researching, how could we not? The truth is that Texas's 254 counties, with their broad variety of record-keeping practices, make title research a tricky beast to tackle — and that's why you need a company that knows Texas better.
