    Title Encumbrances

    Has your project ever been held up due to clearing encumbrances on title?  Depending on the impact the encumbrance has on the property will depend on how or if you need to clear the encumbrance of record. Deciding how to clear, if you need to clear an encumbrance also depends on the type of real property right needed; fee, easement, temporary easement, or right of entry/permits. Identifying the property rights associated with clearing encumbrances and clearing the encumbrance itself, such as utility easements, private access easements, and monetary encumbrance can be confusing and time consuming.
