ABSTRACT SERVICES

Obtaining an abstract of title is another way to protect your interest and your investment during a real estate transaction. An abstract is a compilation of public records and documents, such as mortgages, deeds, servitudes, etc., that could affect a person’s ownership of a specific property. These documents are compiled by a professional into a single document called and Abstract of Title, or “abstract,” for short. Abstracts basically serve as a history of the property and all of the individuals or businesses that have an interest in that property, used to determine who owns the property
