There are a lot of different types of liens, judgments and other encumbrances that can be an issue. To cover all the bases, a title abstract report, completed by a certified title abstractor, is the way to go. Trying to do it yourself at the courthouse or online, unless you are trained, is risky. Search "certified title search" to find a provider. I should cost $100-175. Anything cheaper is just an electronic search and may not be accurate.

There are several ways to learn whether a lien has been placed. First is to contact the County Clerk to see if anything has been filed as part of the public record. In Missouri, you can also check CaseNet...if the lien is the result of a court action, it should show up there. If you know the party who may have filed it, you may be able to ask them (but some situations prevent it). Another option is to contact a local title company, but they may charge for the services. Finally, you can contact a real estate attorney. Hope it helps.

If your county recorders office has a website you should be able to access that info from there. If they don't you can call or go down to the office and ask.

Call the County (or Court) Clerk in the county that the home is in.
