New investor here, just started buying at the auctions in southern California. I find one of my problems is with preliminary title searches right before I buy at trustee sales. Are there any title company’s that can provide a quick over the phone whether or not the property has back taxes, liens, etc…? Factors I can take into account while crunching my numbers. What is the best way in dealing with this?
I’d be willing to use the same company for title insurance for all properties that I buy at the trustee sale or just provide a fee. Any help on this matter would be much appreciated.
