Why is Lien research so difficult?

For most people, lien research may not be the most exciting aspect of the surplus funds and overages business. Lien research is sometimes also referred to as debt research, lien and judgment research, encumbrances research, or due diligence can be challenging for most asset locators due to several reasons:

  1. Complexity of the Process: Understanding the foreclosure process and navigating through the legal jargon involved in accessing public records can be daunting for those who are unfamiliar with real estate process and law.

  2. Variations in State Laws: Foreclosure laws vary from state to state, and sometimes even from county to county within a state. This means that the process of accessing foreclosure records may differ depending on the location, requiring individuals to familiarize themselves with specific regulations.

  3. Availability of Information: While foreclosure records are technically public records, the ease of accessing them can vary. Some jurisdictions may have online databases where records can be easily searched and accessed, while others may require individuals to visit county offices or request records through other means, which can be time-consuming.

  4. Costs Involved: There may be fees associated with accessing foreclosure records, whether it's for online searches, physical copies, or other services related to obtaining the information. These costs can add up, especially for individuals conducting multiple searches or seeking records from different jurisdictions.
