Our team of Title Examiners are responsible for conducting a 20+ year title search on distressed properties, those with unpaid property taxes that are being sent to Tax Deed auction by our County Tax Collector clients, and producing irrefutably accurate Property Information Reports.
There are many reasons property taxes go unpaid. Sometimes the owner has abandoned the property. Other times we find the owner is deceased and their heirs need to be notified. Occasionally we even find that the owner has been listed incorrectly on the tax rolls, so may never have received their tax bills.
Our work requires all of the same skills as traditional title work; we search title plants and online public records to construct and analyze the complete deed chain and encumbrances. Navigating plat books, metes-and-bounds legal descriptions, probate, divorce, foreclosures, and quiet title actions are all part of a day’s work.
Our end goal, however, is quite different from traditional title work; we do not set out to fix clouds on title and don’t issue a title insurance policy or commitment. Instead, we produce reports that accurately identify all parties with a legal interest in the property who must be notified of the upcoming auction. In addition to the title holders this includes all holders of applicable liens and judgments against the property and title holders.
These reports are not backed up by insurance policies, so the stakes are higher than traditional title. If we get something wrong, the Tax Deed may be challenged, which will be quite costly to our clients, so we focus on developing our team’s expertise and producing the highest quality reports we can.
If you have 4+ years of recent experience in Florida both searching and examining real estate titles and related documents online, and a passion for and a deep understanding of the rules and laws related to real property ownership and encumbrance, then read on and consider applying.
If you join our team, you can expect the work to be some of the most challenging you have experienced, and your sense of ownership over the work will likely be the highest it’s ever been.
This is balanced out by being part of a healthy, collaborative, and supportive team of professionals working together for an organization that sees you as a person, empowers you to think for yourself, ensures your voice is heard, and invests in your growth.
Experience with Florida title laws is required, and experience with the laws surrounding the research done for Tax Collectors is preferred.
Additionally, we are looking for candidates who:
Have demonstrated the ability to:
- Follow established guidelines and ask lots of questions.
- Develop a deep understanding of the clients needs, then think critically how to best meet those needs.
- Work both independently and as part of a team.
- Work effectively from a home environment.
- Superior decision-making skills. For example: selecting which documents to examine, then determining what information is relevant, and considering your audience when crafting how to convey what you found.
- Strong attention to detail as you read and extract information from the documents, then enter that information into a report or software without error.
- Clear and concise writing skills, the ability to translate complicated title situations into simple-to-understand explanations for the client.
