The Clerk of Court is not permitted to and does not give “Title Opinions”. Only an Attorney can render a “Title Opinion” in Louisiana. An attorney may utilize several departments in the Clerk’s Office doing the research necessary to form a title opinion. For example, copies of sales and mortgages may be ordered from the Research Department and a Mortgage Certificate might be ordered from the Mortgage Department. After a closing, the Cash Sale, Mortgage and other documents related to the transaction will be filed at the Recording Department.
For further information about Abstracting and Title Opinions, please consult your local library, bank, or your attorney.
