Title Examiners, Abstractors, and Searchers
- Prepare lists of all legal instruments applying to a specific piece of land and the buildings on it.
- Examine documentation such as mortgages, liens, judgments, easements, plat books, maps, contracts, and agreements to verify factors such as properties' legal descriptions, ownership, or restrictions.
- Read search requests to ascertain types of title evidence required and to obtain descriptions of properties and names of involved parties.
- Copy or summarize recorded documents, such as mortgages, trust deeds, and contracts, that affect property titles.
- Examine individual titles to determine if restrictions, such as delinquent taxes, will affect titles and limit property use.

- Verify accuracy and completeness of land-related documents accepted for registration, preparing rejection notices when documents are not acceptable.
