The title search can locate the trust and report any errors.
Most states require a transfer agent to be registered with the state. A transfer agent should have current and a current state license. They should also have liability insurance. When an agent has been paid, they are no longer considered to be an agent for that particular title company. Title companies have records of the previous agents and their license numbers.
