A deed of the house or property is an important document that confirms the transfer of real estate from one owner to another. There are several types of house deeds, such as “settlement”, “assignment” and “guarantee.” Normally, a real estate attorney or a title agent will send the required documentation of the deed to the local county registry office. Although having a certified copy of your house deed is not normally required, you may want to keep a copy for your personal files.
Contact the local county appraiser’s office and obtain the parcel number of your property, the legal description and the date of the last transfer. Provide all identifying information related to the property, such as the address and current owner. Obtaining the plot number, the legal description and the date of the last transfer can speed up the deed search process when dealing with certain local governments.
Travel to the local registrar’s office and request a certified copy of your deed from home. If you cannot travel to the records office, ask the representative if the office can mail a certified copy of your house deed.
It provides all the useful information for the office representative, including the owner’s name, lot number, legal description and the date of the last transfer.
Pay any expenses required by the records office, if necessary.
Keep the deed of the house with your personal documents.
