Title Search

From lawbrain.com

The process of examining official county records to determine whether an owner's rights in real property are good.

A title search is conducted to discover whether there are any defects in the ownership of a particular tract of land. An abstract of title, prepared by the examiner subsequent to such an investigation, is a condensed history of the title to the land.
