Historical Note

According to Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia, 2017, an abstract of title is a "brief and orderly statement concerning real property (land), which furnishes a history of the title to be transferred, showing not only the origin and nature of the interest of the seller, but also all encumbrances and other interests, such as mortgages, easements, recorded judgments, and trusts that affect the title." A search regarding the title is usually made by a lawyer or an abstract and title company and the information added to the abstract comes from public records.
