Let us streamline your property report searches with the following full service searches. We’ll uncover anything that might get in the way of your deal, and anything that might put you at legal risk. If you’re in New York City, or anywhere in the state, call Allegiance Abstract Services for:

Cooperative Search

If you are buying a new home in New York City, you’re probably buying into a cooperative, not a condominium complex. About 75 percent of available homes in the city are co-ops. When you buy a co-op, you are buying shares in a corporation that give you proprietary rights over your housing unit. It is critical that you know the history of the co-op to make sure you don’t get in over your head. Call us if you’re unsure about what you need to know, and let us do the hard work for you.

Covenant & Restriction Search

Don’t wait until you are about to close on a residential or commercial property to review covenants and restrictions. It is too late, at that point, to do any additional research that is required. We’ll get you everything you need to know on restrictive covenants at the beginning of your purchase process. We save you time and money because you’ll know right off the bat whether or not a property is worth pursuing.

Deed & Mortgage Chain Search

If you are buying a home that has been passed down through the generations of a single family, or a piece of property for which the mortgage chain is uncertain, don’t take any chances. Let us do the due diligence to find out with 100 percent certainty that you won’t be hit with any surprises regarding the chain of title.

Judgment & Lien Search

The last thing you need is to find out too late that there is a judgement lien pending against your property, or a property that you’re planning to purchase. If there is an old lawsuit with an unresolved lien on a property you purchase, you could end up with a long, expensive legal battle on your hands. Let us help. We’ll find any old judgement liens and make sure you’re protected.

Last Owner’s Search

Make sure you know how many times a property has changed hands over the past few years. You might learn that there is more work to be done before making a final purchase decision. We’re here to help. Just give us a call.

Map Certification & Filings of Maps

Is your property in a floodplain or otherwise zoned in a way that is not conducive to your your plans? The map you’re looking at may be old, outdated, and leave you exposed. Let us do a thorough search to make sure you’re looking at the most up-to-date information and making an informed decision.

If you aren’t sure what you’re looking for, just give us a call. Tell us about the property you are considering buying, and we can take from there. We’ll do the due diligence for you and make sure the title is clear and there are no hidden surprises waiting for you. We’ll manage all of your property searches, including the following:
