A title report that is based on a full search of the public records extending farther back in time, including information from a period before the year 1935 and often back to the year 1900. This is usually ordered when it is necessary to find easements recorded prior to the period covered by a standard title report.
A report of title based on an abbreviated search of the public records extending back no farther than the current owner. This only shows financial liens against the property, not easements or other restrictions.
A report based on a full search of the public records, only for the period after the date of an existing title policy. This report is issued in advance of an endorsement to a policy which is insured by an underwriter for whom we are currently an agent (Old Republic National Title Insurance Company or Agents National Title Insurance Company). Endorsements are used to modify the coverage of an existing policy including an increase in the amount of insurance based on an advance on the current mortgage insured under the policy to be endorsed.
