Title Search on any Real Estate
Our office STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that you run a title search at your county courthouse on any real estate you own to search for judgement liens. If you fail to do so, we will not be able to properly treat these liens and they will still be attached to your property even after you receive a bankruptcy discharge. If there are any liens, please provide our office with copies of any memorandums of judgement.
