The two most common types of property title searches are:
1. Current owner title search: A current owner title search, sometimes referred to as a title or property report, is a search of the public records from the date the property's title was transferred to the current owner to the present.
2. Full title search: A full title search involves an in-depth search of the property's chain of title from the date the current owner took title back to a maximum of 60 years.
Please note that property title searches are confined to the official public records and will not uncover any off-record risks such as forgeries, fraud, and encroachments that aren't recorded in the official public records.
