LOL Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS!  Title chain allows for transparency and to ascertain there are no liens - nothing hidden, as Thomas mentioned!

It may not be important to you, but it matters to banks & title companies.  You may need to contact a prior owner over an issue with the house.

Chain of title are the links in the history of the property that connect the dots ... it will show transfers, liens, judgments, etc. Title must transfer "clear" with no clouds.
