Abstract
Description
Determining the ownership, interest, and any encumbrances on a tract of real property is critical when acquiring rights of way. It plays a role in what interest SCDOT acquires in the property and may impact the valuation of the tract. Currently statewide, on in-house projects worked by Agents, a title investigation is the primary method by which ownership, interests, and encumbrances on a tract are determined. This project answers the question: Should the Rights of Way Department require title opinions be completed by a title attorney on all in-house projects worked by Agents?
