What Is an Affidavit Of Title?

An Affidavit of Title is a sworn statement that describes the ownership history of a piece of property.

The Affidavit of Title must be signed by the current owner of the property and must list all previous owners going back to the original owner, and must also list any encumbrances on the property, such as mortgages, liens, or judgments, and often required when transferring ownership of a piece of property, and provides the buyer with assurance that the seller actually owns the property and that there are no outstanding claims against it.
