Become a Title Searcher

Most people dream of one day owning their own homes: There are many steps in the process of buying a home, and one of the most important is searching the title, to make sure that it is clear. A title searcher checks the records and then gives a guarantee that the property is clear. Become a title searcher to perform this interesting work, by following these steps:

1 Make sure you have the prerequisites to become a title searcher; Usually this is just a high school education, or equivalent, but you should check in your area for the requirements.

2 Enroll in a course to become a title searcher: You can take these courses online.

3 Take a course at your local community college; This is especially helpful if you would rather have hands-on attention, instead of learning on your own. Check the yellow pages of your local phone book, and call schools in your area, to find out what courses are available.

4 Visit your county assessor’s office, to view public records, and practice your title searcher skills by searching a few titles.

5 Challenge yourself further by going online and looking up public records in your local area, and then perform a title search, using the skills you learned on your course.

6 Apply to become a title searcher with title companies in your area: Send your CV to them, then follow up with a phone call.

7 Interview for the position of title searcher, and if you are successful, you can then begin work in your new field.
