Examiner Of Titles
The Examiner of Titles and Deputy Examiners are attorneys appointed by the judges of the district court to perform the judicial, administrative and legal adviser duties specified in the Minnesota Land Registration Act, also sometimes called the Torrens Act.
The Examiner of Titles assists the district court by examining titles, issuing reports and conducting hearings in court cases involving the registration of land titles and in court cases involving problems or disputes with land which has been previously registered.
An important function of the Examiner of Titles is to act as legal adviser to the Registrar of Titles, who is responsible for filing title documents (e.g., deeds, mortgages, liens) submitted to the Registrar and for issuing Certificates of Title. The Examiner of Titles is also authorized by state statute to issue certain directives and certifications to the Registrar of Titles regarding Torrens title matters.
Persons who deal with the Examiner of Titles office include attorneys, title insurance company personnel, real estate brokers and salespersons, mortgage companies, and owners of real property in Hennepin County.
