Why Should a Buyer Have an Attorney Perform a Lien Search on a Property Being Purchased?


As opposed to a title search, a lien search is a search of unrecorded matter that could affect title to the property. Without a lien search, you would not know of any building violations, any open permits, or any unpaid utility charges. It is very important prior to purchasing any real estate in Florida to obtain a lien search on that property.
