Excel Title Services


Title Insurance

Title insurance protects you and the lender in case something unforeseen happens, covering the loss of ownership interest in your property due to:

  • Undisclosed or unknown heirs
  • Forged deeds, mortgages, wills and other documents
  • Probate issues
  • Deeds and wills by persons of unsound mind
  • Conveyances by undisclosed divorced spouses
  • Deeds by persons falsely representing their marital status
  • Adverse possession
  • Tax record errors
  • Unrecorded encumbrances and instruments

Unlike traditional insurance that protects you against something in the future, title insurance protects you from something in the past. You only pay a premium once, at the time of the closing.

Title Searches and Title Exams

Once you and a seller have agreed on a real estate transaction, Excel Title Services will conduct title searches and title exams.

A title search/exam reviews all public records that affect the property, including prior mortgages, judgments and liens to ensure they were all paid in full, as well as past wills, deeds and trusts to ensure the title has correctly passed to each new owner. The title agent also will look for boundary disputes, fraudulent documents and any issues that can interfere with your purchase. We can even coordinate your title search/exam needs across the United States.

Uniform Commercial Code/Litigation Searches

Excel Title Services performs Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and litigation searches throughout the United States. It also can e-insure the proper filing of UCC-1 financing statements and UCC-3 amendments.

Foreclosure Judicial Title Reports

Excel Title Services provides preliminary judicial reports and judicial commitments required by mortgage lenders during property foreclosures.

1031 Tax-Deferred Exchanges

Survey Ordering and Coordination

Most lenders and title insurance underwriters require a survey of any property being purchased or mortgaged.

If any issues are discovered, we will notify the real estate broker, lender and the new buyer immediately.
