Types of Massachusetts Title Searches

There are several different kinds of title searches. In Massachusetts, the title to real estate is recorded and documented at the Registry of Deeds for the County in which the real estate is located.

A “full” title search is usually provided for a purchase of real estate. It is commonly accepted that a “full” search covers a fifty year period.

In addition, some mortgage lenders for a refinance, will require either a current owner or a two owner search.
