The certificate of title is the piece of paper that states the property belongs to the owner. This document can help buyers know what the assets of the property are and how much they are worth. The certificate is divided into sections. One section will list the physical things about the property. This can include the size of the buildings or the amount of land. It can also include the address. A certificate of title also gives information about the owner of the property. The registered name of the owner as well as some other type of identifying information are listed. The information on the title will vary based on where the property is located. The last section on the certificate is the most important as it will list any claims or liens against the property.
