How can I be sure that a foreclosed property has a clear title?

Information concerning liens recorded against a property may be researched by the public in the County Clerk’s Deed Records Department located at 101 W. Nueva, Suite B109, San Antonio, TX 78205, or by visiting our website. Title insurance and guaranteed clear title searches are performed by title companies for a fee; you may also seek legal advice from an attorney. The County Clerk’s Office does not guarantee a clear title and is not responsible for any encumbrances on the property. Foreclosure is a very complex process and we suggest you contact your legal advisor if you have concerns or questions about a particular property.
