In some ways, residential transactions are even more complicated than commercial real estate transactions. Various local, state, and federal inspection and disclosure requirements that do not apply to commercial transactions are a requirement in residential ones. Additionally, years of mortgages, sales, easements, and subdivisions as well as uncertain property boundaries can make the title on a piece of residential property a confusing mess. Buying or selling such a piece of real estate without confronting these problems is a huge risk for both parties.

A thorough title search can be especially important in residential transactions. These plots pass through many owners and may be divided, combined, or reapportioned multiple times during their history. Moreover, residential real estate may be subject to old mortgages, liens, easements, or other encumbrances as well as old covenants restricting the way an owner may use the property. In extreme cases, a piece of real estate may even be subject to a competing claim of ownership from a third party. A title investigation can avoid these dangers by disclosing them to the parties and providing the opportunity to rectify them if possible.
