A Present Owner Lien Search defines itself. You’ll get copy of the current deed and a Report that includes a search parameter from the present to when the current owner purchased the property. You’ll see if there are any open and recorded Mortgages, Liens, or Judgments against the property.
People request Present Owner Lien Searches for different reasons. Sometimes neglected properties are sold at Tax or Sheriff Sale, and prudent buyers researching a potential purchase request this kind of search. Other times, the owners themselves (or their representative) will request this search as they are preparing to sell their home, to ensure that there are no unexpected items on the title to surprise them when they do secure a buyer.
