No matter where you plan to acquire property, you must consider the local jurisdictional laws, procedures and risks that govern your transaction. Most active real estate markets have a system for organizing and recording property purchases, but they vary widely throughout the world.
For instance, in some jurisdictions, title registries may offer some protection to registered owners and/or mortgagees. In others, purchasers may have to rely on legal opinions based on excerpts from official title records. In all cases, securing a "good title" is essential to a successful transaction and your peace of mind – and a trusted partner can help you enjoy both.
