A title search is an examination of the public records that discovers any liens, defects, restrictions, easements, etc. to which a property may be subject. A title search provides information to the requester (usually an attorney for North Carolina closings) that explains how or whether a property can be conveyed with a "clean title". The attorney uses this information to acquire loan payoffs, tax bills due, judgment or lien payoffs, etc. in order to "clear" the title for the next owner.
