We strongly recommend that you have a lien search performed for a condominium. We often find permit and code violations on individual condominium units.
What are your average turnaround times?
Most of our searches will be returned to us in 4-5 business days. However, we rely on the processing times of the individual municipalities. We do regular follow-up calls or emails to expedite responses from cities and counties.
Is it important to perform a lien search on Vacant Land?
Yes. Although there is no structure on the property, we frequently find code violations and fees for lot mowing or junk and debris on the lot. Sometimes we find open permits.
What is an HOA Estoppel?
