TIER (Title Insurance Exception Review)
If you’d like to know more about a specific property that you’re looking to buy, we can perform legal research for you. Contrary to most people’s understanding, title insurance only offers a degree of protection, not a blanket guarantee. Title insurance exceptions are attached to virtually every property in Washington State. Some are benign and common (such as easements for buried utilities). Other title exceptions, however, are rare and complex, potentially impacting not only on your use and enjoyment of the property, but also its value and re-sale value. As part of our TIER service (title insurance exception review), we research all of the public-record documents that have been registered with the county in which the property is located.
Our TIER Plus service takes due diligence legal research a step further. You custom-design our legal analysis by letting us know what specific questions or concerns you have about a parcel. Not only will we review title insurance exceptions for you, but you get a legal opinion regarding the specific risks that keep you awake at night, risks that have a bearing on the purchase price of the land.

- duplexes, triplexes, and multiplexes
- vacation homes / second homes
