Municipal Lien Search FAQ

Municipal Lien Search & Related Terminology

Municipal Lien Searches

Municipal lien searches are an investigation to find undocumented or unrecorded municipal liens, utility and open or expired permits issues, code violations, special assessments that are associated with residential or commercial real estate.

Prior to closing, these municipal charges are the responsibility of the seller, however if they go unpaid, they can become the responsibility of the buyer.

Title searches just uncover any recorded liens on a property but do not disclose municipal debts against property. This can result in a lien if not cleared up prior to closing. Unrecorded, undocumented liens are not covered under your Owners Title Insurance policy!

The bank’s title insurance agents are not required to and are not conducting Municipal Lien Searches on these properties. Don’t assume the closing agent is concerned about such matters, as this is not always the case. It is ultimately the buyer’s responsibility to obtain this information.

A few years ago, Title Underwriters began to require municipal lien searches before releasing exceptions that had been placed within the title policy.

Unrecorded liens on properties for unpaid fees like municipal utilities, solid waste and code enforcement assessments started showing up.

Going to the closing table took on new risks, especially after unrecorded liens became commonplace.

Zoning Letters
An Estoppel letter (also called an Estoppel Certificate, Resale Certificate or a Closing Letter) is a declaration by the HOA of all of the outstanding debts and violations on a property.
