Title search at recorders office

Is searching by grantor/grantee name the way it’s done? It also asks for a date range, how far would you go back? I was expecting to input the apn# for a search but doesn’t seem as easy as I thought!

Hi Steve,
You would need to search by the owners name. The date range would depend on the loans in the transaction history and what you are looking for. If you are looking for reconveyances on older loans then you would want to search the date near the new loan. If you were looking for IRS lien you would certainly be most concerned with those that may be filed before the foreclosing loan but you will certainly want to know about any and all IRS liens.
