Post-closing Search Certificates

Definition:  A Post-closing Search Certificate is a one page document that certifies to any new documents, judgments or liens filed of public record that affect title to a particular parcel of land since the property was last searched.  Post-closing Search Certificates can be used in conjunction with Preliminary Continuations, Title Reports, and Pre-closing Search Certificates.  In most situations, the Post-closing Search Certificate includes a showing of a new Deed and/or Mortgage that have been filed. 

When to Order:  A Post-closing Search Certificate is often ordered in the following situations: 

  1. When a Preliminary Continuation was completed recently (with the last few weeks or months), the closing is complete, and we have filed a new Deed and/or Mortgage.  The Post-closing Search Certificate provides a quick confirmation that the documents were filed without any intervening judgments, liens or other documents
  2. When a Title Report was completed recently (with the last few weeks or months), the closing is complete, and we have filed a new Deed and/or Mortgage.  The Post-closing Search Certificate (sometimes called an "Updated Title Report" in this situation) provides a quick confirmation that the documents were filed without any intervening judgments, liens or other documents

Time to Prepare:  Preparation of most Post-closing Search Certificates requires less than 2 hours to complete.  

Cost:  The cost of preparing a Post-closing Search Certificate is $35.
