Title Search (Clear Title?)

In my profession (aviation) there are several service companies which will perform a "Title Search" on prospective airplanes offered for sale. This will enable the prospective purchaser to "pre-view" the thread of prior ownership AND reveal any public liens filed against that item. (Does NOT reveal IRS claims or mechanic liens... a whole 'nother story!.. but at least gives an idea if the seller you're talking to is telling the truth about his claimed ownership.)

I've "Giggled" and found nothing to compare with that resource. (I have found VIN search routines that reveal past service-calls to dealers, but that's not what I'm looking for.)

Without a title in hand matching the VIN it's a hard call. Another option is involving the lien holder to make sure of how they handle the title once the debt is paid.

If the trailer is MUCH older and you cant confirm the VIN be wary.

I haven't found a "sure fire" method using a title service or otherwise that prevents issues down the road. Some states will issue a title bond when a title is missing.
