Doing A Title Search On Your Own - Posted by JoeSoCal

I just went through several hours of archives and didn’t see a concern of mine specifically addressed. I saw bits and pieces and I am hoping someone could elaborate.
At this time, it just isnt economically feasible for me to do a title search on every property I have an interest in. Hell, to be honest, even if it were, I wouldnt want to shell out the money.
I am not necessarily looking to become a pro, but I would like to acquire the experience to do a title search on my own so that I could be very comfortable knowing that I pretty much caught any possible obstacle or “uh oh” situation.
Would any of you mind providing a detailed and extremely specific checklist? I am looking for a literal step by step, if possible. I want to get a good idea of the mindframe and the logical steps one should take.
For example, because I have found “Situation A” it is important to lookout for such and such problem area, etc. I realize that there are always going to be those extremely rare situations that is bound to pop up and bite ya in the butt…but I am more concerned about being able to correctly understand and know what I SHOULD be looking for/things that will come up on a regular basis.
Thanks for any guidance. It is very appreciated.
