What is a Title Commitment in a Real Estate Transaction?

In a real estate transaction, a Title Company is often selected to help ensure that the property has a clear title for the new owner. During a Title Search, a Title Company will find public records which will help determine if a clear title can be issued or if there is a “cloud on the title.” A cloud on the title (e.g., Judgement, Divorce, Liens) will have conditions that need to be met before the Title Company will issue a Commitment to insure the property.

When a Title Commitment is issued, it’ll have four “Schedules” – Schedules A through D. See below for a short description of each Schedule:


If you have specific questions about your Title Commitment, contact your Title Company/Escrow Office or the Attorney’s office handling your transaction.
