If you are considering buying any type of property, a municipal search shouldn’t be overlooked. You don’t want to be caught off guard on closing day, or worse yet, after the transaction is complete. A municipal search can help identify any outstanding issues related to taxes, utilities, liens, permits, and other violations that may involve the property.

Why To Get A Municipal Search

A municipal search isn’t required by most lenders. Sellers and buyers are typically not required to conduct one. But, that doesn’t mean you should skip it, especially if you are buying a foreclosed property, or a property with an unclear ownership history. Ultimately if a problem exists, it is the buyer’s responsibility to find it. As long as the seller has done their due diligence, anything that has remained uncovered is your responsibility. So the seller really has no incentive to pay for a municipal search.
