(redirected from Title Examination)

Examination of Title

In real estate, research done to investigate the legitimacy of a title. An examination of title is done before the sale of property to ensure that there are no competing claims for the same property. An examination of title looks into only recent history and does not trace the property back to its source. For that reason, its findings may not be as accurate as a full title search, which tracks the property back to its beginnings or a statutory date.
