All our Search Reports are prepared in an easy to read layout. However, if you are a licensed title agent looking to be more efficient in preparing your title commitments, we are pleased to be able to provide the same information on forms consistent with the standard schedules of the title insurance commitment form for Pennsylvania. The cover date of the search will be shown as the effective date of the title commitment.

 


SEARCH REPORT or TITLE COMMITMENT
 

The report will show who holds title to the estate or interest to the real estate, and will delineate defects to title, liens, encumbrances, adverse claims, and other matters found to affect title to the real estate within the public records for the time period searched. Liens and encumbrances will be disclosed on Schedule “B” section 1 of the report, along with any recommended requirements for insuring title. An abstract of the recorded exceptions and other recommended exceptions to title will appear Schedule “B” section 2 of the report. The legal description and recital will be disclosed on Schedule “C” of the report and will be provided even for a Basic Search Commitment.

The current deed with the brief of title will be included as addenda to the Title Commitment forms only for a Standard or Extensive Search Commitment

For an Extensive Search, additional recommended requirements and exceptions to title may be added to the report if an Examination of Title is completed. Copies of the recorded exceptions would also be provided.

This report is only available to licensed title agents and would not include an Underwriters commitment binder jacket. Title agents will need to review, amend and/or augment the recommended requirements and exceptions to title that are shown on the report. The actual “Commitment to Insure Title” can only be issued by the licensed title agent, and then only after the agent has examined the title provided and added any additional requirements and exceptions to comply with the specific underwriting guidelines of their Title Insurance Underwriter. The agent will also need to attach the appropriate Underwriters commitment binder jacket.
