Title examiners are responsible for doing research on property titles and publicly maintained records to determine the ownership of a property and what, if any, restrictions are placed on a piece of property. Title examiners often work for (and may be contracted by) many types of organizations, including banks, government agencies, law offices, real estate companies, individual home buyers, and others. Title examiners' work is used to finalize property titles, transfer deeds, and form contracts for developing land.
