Benefits of Investment Services
Working with a title company that offers investment CLOSING services has many advantages:
Access to an attorney. Real estate transactions require an attorney for closing and other steps along the way. We provide attorney services as needed.
Minimized risk of title encumbrances. A title encumbrance refers to any situation where a property does not have a clear and undisputed title. As a title company we will conduct a thorough title search to ensure that there are no encumbrances. We also provide title insurance to protect your investment in case of a title dispute.
Close on schedule. There are many mishaps that can delay your closing. But with the help of a title company many of those potential issues can be eliminated. We have experts that handle every aspect of your closing to make sure it happens on time.
Built in escrow management. Escrow is necessary to avoid paying taxes on your investment as it moves from one property to another. We can also act as your escrow agent in addition to our other investment services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need title insurance for investment real estate?
Title insurance and a title search is an important part of any real estate transaction. The title search involves thorough research to ensure that the title of the property is free and clear, meaning that there are no liens or encumbrances. If a title issue is found, insurance is what protects you financially from the losses that you may incur due to the problem.
How can American Guardian Title help me with lenders?
To get approved for financing in real estate investment, it helps to have a referral from a title company that works with hard money lenders. The referral process helps ensure that closings go according to schedule.
Why do I need an attorney in investment real estate?
In order to conduct legal real estate transactions they must be overseen by an attorney. Attorneys provide the documents and handle legal matters required to close on an investment property. You can hire your own real estate attorney, but you’ll save money by using our attorneys in addition to the other investment services we provide.
Does a title search ensure that there are no liens or encumbrances?
Not necessarily. In most cases a thorough title search conducted by an experienced title company will uncover any liens or encumbrances, but there is always a possibility that another party could claim legal ownership of the property. This is why title insurance is important, to protect your financial investment in case the seller does not have the legal right to sell the property.
