An abstract contains a detailed listing of public records (e.g. leases, mortgages, deeds, wills, probate records, court litigations, tax sales, etc.) associated with a specific piece of land. Essentially, this document is a collection of legal documents showing the activities related to that property. It can be used as a basis for a title insurance search or can be taken to an attorney for an opinion of title. At Lakes Title, we can create new abstracts or update existing ones.
Protection against costly or troublesome title problems begins with an Owners and/or Lenders Policy of Title Insurance. Our experienced and knowledgeable team will work with you to determine what will best meet your needs in this fast-paced industry. As an agent for First American Title Insurance Company and Old Republic National Title Company, we will issue a title insurance policy that provides you with the best coverage.
Lakes Title offers property reports for real estate attorneys and lenders. A property report is a property search from the last deed of record to present, and it contains information like the current legal owner, encumbrances, legal description of the property, and real estate tax information. We bring our values of flexibility and dedication to deliver a flexible, customized report on any piece of property across Wisconsin.
Often our friends at competing title companies need assistance with research in the counties we cover. We, too, sometimes have this need. By ordering a search package through us, you would receive all the research and necessary recorded documentation on your property so that you can write title insurance. This allows companies to obtain their research more efficiently and provide the best possible turn around time for their customers. This product can be requested by clicking on the “Order” tab.
Lakes Title has years of experience closing any type of real estate transaction, from residential to commercial. We have worked extensively with real estate agents, loan officers, and lawyers across Wisconsin. If you wish, we will travel to you, and we can be flexible with our closing schedules. With Lakes Title, your interests come first.
Buying a home during a foreclosure could save you thousands of dollars. But purchasing a property at auction may be a daunting prospect for some buyers. You need the help of professionals to obtain information about the property, and to attend a Sheriff’s sale on your or your client’s behalf. We take foreclosure purchasing seriously, and we will guide you through the process every step of the way.
