Why Municipal Lien Search?
A municipal lien search looks for unrecorded property issues that a traditional title search does not uncover. This includes unpaid/open utility bills, code violations, special assessments, property taxes, and open or expired building permits. These municipal issues aren’t in the public record but still contribute a problem as new owners may be held liable for any debts and issues.
Our office conducts a search of the subject property for any open and/or expired permit information on record with the municipality.
