TODAY, MORE FIRMS CHOOSE DATATREE--BECAUSE IT’S FASTER AND EASIER TO OBTAIN CURRENT, ACCURATE PROPERTY-CENTRIC DATA AND DOCUMENTS.

DataTree includes more of what you need--like our Full Transaction History report. This powerful report draws upon the most comprehensive database of public-record information, providing vital historical details, including ownership transfers such as quit claims and market sales. Mortgage-related data (from sales and refinancing) are also available, along with releases, assignments and foreclosure information. Any team member--from the law librarian to the lead counsel--can access any document related to a listed transaction, with just a few clicks.

Verified Data You Can Trust

DataTree empowers your case research with the security and confidence of Verified Record. Key fields in standard transactions are matched against independently sourced data. When a match is identified from at least two independent sources, the transaction is designated as “Verified” in our reports. This saves you time by minimizing your need for your own independent verification process.

Verified Data You Can Trust

Title Chain & Lien Report

And when you finish searching, DataTree combines your reports into one output stream and groups related documents together--all while making supporting document images (for retrieving legal and vesting information) only a click away.
