Chain of Title Search

Trace your property’s ownership back to 1940 with a Chain of Title Search.

We use a highly-skilled network of professional researchers around the country to fulfill Chain of Title Searches.

A Chain of Title Search includes the following:

  • Copy of the current vesting instrument
  • A list of ownership transfers with dates and recorded instrument numbers back to 1940
  • Summary report showing the parcel number(s) and brief legal description(s)


A Chain of Title Search is a valuable tool in determining past owners of a property, and helping to identify if past property uses raise red-flags of environmental concern. EDR’s Chain of Title is an accepted standard historical source under ASTM E1527-13.
