Why you should leverage the Title Check feature!

The Title Check* feature is a transformative solution designed to simplify the due diligence process. By leveraging this tool, you can quickly identify encumbrances affecting a subject property, enhancing your role as a trusted advisor. Please note, the Title Check feature is available if applicable to your subscription type.   

What is Title Check? 

The Title Check feature focuses on five critical areas to streamline and elevate your due diligence process by quickly displaying if your subject property is possibly impacted by any of the five common encumbrances: 

  1. Registered Mortgages: Instantly determine if the subject property has a registered mortgage. 
  2. Liens: Uncover any liens that may affect the subject property.  
  3. NOSIs (Notice of Security Interest): Discover important details, such as hot water tank rentals. 
  4. Condo Declarations (if applicable): Dive into condo declaration information when dealing with condominiums. 
  5. Condo Plans (if applicable): Access insights into condo plans, empowering you to make well-informed decisions. 

Why Title Check is Essential 

Encumbrances flagged by the Title Check tool signal the need for further due diligence. While Title Check offers a snapshot, a deeper dive into a Parcel Register** and associated registered documents provides comprehensive insights into these encumbrances. It’s your key to unlocking additional details and ensuring a seamless transaction process. It’s important to note that a Parcel Register might uncover encumbrances beyond the five critical areas included in the Title Check feature.
