What is a municipal lien search? A search for this type of lien is used to investigate any violations, unrecorded liens, taxes, and permits that are associated with the property. It is assumed that closing agents are responsible for pulling these reports, but that isn’t always the case. The buyer of the property should always check to see if any municipal lien has been placed on the real estate property at the time of sale. CertSimple can help buyers conduct these searches, as well as tax certificates.

How to Obtain a Municipal Lien Certificate in Texas

A municipal lien report can be issued as a certification, meaning that it is legally binding. To acquire this type of certificate, the company requesting this information is required to send the county collector’s office a written request. Once received with the fee, documentation of any municipal lien owed to that municipal city and the cost will be returned. CertSimple can help by requesting these documents for you - making your property-buying experience a more pleasant one.

Determining the Municipal Lien Search Cost

The amount you pay for a municipal lien search depends on the company you use and the municipality you are sending the inquiry to. For most of these searches, the price in Texas can range from $100 to $200. CertSimple’s rates are based on the services you need, from a new municipal lien search to title research on any property within our service area.
