The search is conducted with the city or county finance department to determine whether there are any unrecorded special assessment liens, unrecorded agreements as to impact and other developmental fees, unpaid waste fees payable to the county or municipality, unpaid service charges, or amounts due as a result of violations.
Municipalities can attach unrecorded liens to a property, which can be expensive and require extensive repairs and corrections as this information is not found in a standard Title Search.

Unless provided in the city/county lien search results, code enforcement information is requested for each lien search, unless we are instructed otherwise.

Nuisance complaints involve properties with an accumulation of rubbish or junk including, but not limited to, refuse, garbage, scrap metal, lumber, concrete, asphalt, piles of earth, tires, etc. These properties may also include abandoned, wrecked, dismantled or inoperative vehicles or vehicle engines.
