Job Description for Title Clerk

Title clerk handles titles - written contracts - for the sale, transfer, and purchase of property. The exact field in which the title clerk works define the employee's tasks the employee is responsible for. For example, an automobile title clerk conducts tasks such as calculating taxes, maintaining records, providing support to associates, and submitting weekly reports of sales, profits, and commissions. As a title clerk for property such as homes and land, some tasks may include helping prepare/request deeds and affidavits, preparing records to transmit leases and abstracts, and examining contracts to ensure purchase agreements meet specific requirements.

Transitioning into an Office Manager role — which pays $35K — is also typical for Title Clerks, though less common by comparison.
