You can count on receiving fully prepared, ready-to-sign documents within 24 hours. Our team meticulously reviews, edits, and completes each form, ensuring you’re all set for the next stage of your transaction, whether it involves recording or the next appropriate step.

Any Document that requires recording (i.e., Deed, Lien, etc.) is crucial to promptly record once it’s been fully signed and notarized. Recording it with the county recorder makes the document a matter of public record, ensuring your position on the title is secure and preventing any other transfers or liens from occurring before yours. Be sure NOT to include sensitive personal information, like a social security number or date of birth, on recordable forms, as these details will indeed become public records.

You can obtain a FREE copy of the property owner’s Deed from the Clark County Assessor’s office website. Simply follow these steps:

Things you should know before recording a Deed:

A judgment is a court ruling that allows the creditor or the “winning party” to take possession of your assets to settle monies owed in full. If an individual (or other entity) is added to title to a real property and has pending lawsuits that turn into a judgment or have existing judgment, this may attach to assets owned and may be considered a judgment lien against real property. Once this is attached to real property, it is required to be settled before or at close of the sale.

Transferring ownership to a real property without paying off current loan, may be considered a breach of contract under the terms described in most Deeds of Trust. Lenders may exercise their right to sell or “Due on Sale” clause that may be included in the loan agreement. Contact your Lender before transferring ownership.

Mortgage liens, third party interests and/or other encumbrances do not automatically get removed when you record a Deed transferring ownership. The transfer of ownership takes place, but the new owner acquires property subject to existing encumbrances to the property. If you are looking to transfer title due to an actual sale, you must contact an Escrow and Title Insurance company to assist with properly closing your transaction. They will conduct a title search, clear encumbrances on title (including liens and third party interests) and will issue a title insurance policy protecting buyer and lender, if applicable.

When you first purchase a real property, an owner’s title insurance policy is issued protecting buyer(s) from seller encumbrances and/or prior owners. This policy is in effect during buyer’s ownership of property. This means, once you remove the insured buyer from title, it may cancel the title insurance policy. You should contact your Title Insurance Company before recording a Deed removing the original buyer from title. If you are looking to transfer title into your Trust or business entity, the title insurance company will be able to advise if an endorsement of policy can be issued to continue policy coverage under a new entity.

Our services do not encompass title record searches, nor do we underwrite any form of title insurance protection.

See Promissory Note.

Is a legal document that grants someone else the authority to act on behalf of another person in various matters, such as financial, legal or medical decisions. When it comes to real property, most Title Insurance companies require specific verbiage on the Power of Attorney and require the same to be signed and notarized in their office or with a trusted individual in order to avoid risk of fraud claims against their title insurance policy.  

If you need a Power of Attorney to buy or sell real property, we recommend you contact a title insurance company to prepare this in advance for your transaction.

Document to transfer possible interest or rights in a property from one party to another without making any assurances. Unlike other types of Deeds, a quit claim deed does not provide any guarantees or warranties about property’s title. This type of Deed is often used in situations where parties involved have pre-existing relationships such as spouses looking to remove any possible community property interest.

Every interest in real property granted to two or more persons is considered tenancy in common, unless expressly declared on Deed to be a joint tenancy. This is normally added to a Deed vesting when interest is split between multiple owners.

An Insurance that protects title property owners and lenders against financial loss due to issues or defects on title of the real property. 

A purchase of real property requires a Title Insurance Company to conduct a title search based on public records to ensure no claims, liens or other issues are found on title of the real property. If any issues arise after closing, such as undisclosed heirs, forged documents or errors in the title records, the insurance policy provides protection to the insured owner and mortgage lender.

The Grantor appoints a Trustee to act on the benefit of the trust as described in the agreement and in the best interest of the beneficiaries. Once a Trust Agreement is created, the grantor then transfers assets, like real property. This is often used for estate planning purposes, asset protection and/or management of property on behalf of minors or individuals who may not be capable of handling their own affairs.

It is a document issued by the Trustee confirming the existence and terms of the Trust Agreement. It includes the name of the trust, date it was created, current Trustees, beneficiaries and any amendments. This is a document the County recorder may require when transferring ownership of real property in and out of a Trust.

The individual or entity appointed to manage a trust on behalf of the trust’s beneficiary. A trustee holds a fiduciary duty, which means they are obligated to act in the best interest of the beneficiary.

It is the grantor or settlor who creates the Trust and transfers assets into the trust.

A Deed recorded outside of a title-insured transaction. This uninsured deed many times is verified by title insurance companies when handling sale of the property in order to protect the new owner against fraud and avoid future claims. This verification may be in the form of a Validity Statement which requires Grantor of said uninsured deed to sign confirming it was in fact his/her signature and the intention to transfer ownership.
