A concise, summarized history of the title to a specific parcel of real property, together with a statement of all liens and encumbrances affecting the property. The abstractor searches the title as recorded in the Bureau of Conveyances, the Land Court, the Circuit Court and other official sources. He then summarizes the various instruments affecting the property and arranges them in chronological order of recording, starting with the original grant of title. The abstract also includes a list showing which public records he has not searched in preparing his report. The Abstract of Title does not guarantee or assure the validity of the title of the property. It merely discloses those items about the property that are of public record.
