Do own title search?

I am buyinging at foreclosure auctions and feel somewhat comfortable I can perform my own title search or should I take an online course?

What happens when you make a costly mistake? Are you planning on buying a house without title insurance?

No. I’m talking about doing the search before the auction.

In my county it sometimes takes up to 6 months for the registrar of deeds to post paperwork. Be careful of stuff that hasn’t yet posted and don’t be afraid to ask other people in the deed office for help. many times you can find freelance title researchers there doing research on other properties.
