If a corporation, either domestic or foreign, is found in the chain of title within the last ten years, a franchise tax search is recommended in order to ensure that there are no liens for unpaid franchise taxes due to the State of New Jersey. Greater Atlantic can provide these search reports for a fee of $35.00. Greater Atlantic maintains a database of all Franchise Tax Reports obtained throughout the year so in the event you order a search on a corporation that is already in our database, we can provide that report to you within 24 hours. For searches on corporations that are not in our database already, the Division of Taxation takes 4 to 6 weeks to provide results.

A thorough review of a foreclosure proceeding, which includes an abbreviated summary of all pleadings, with particular emphasis in identifying the defendants (mortgagors/debtors, creditors, other lienholders), and providing notation on irregularities found.

A Post Judgment Certificate of Regularity is essentially a Short Form Abstract. The review of the foreclosure is as extensive as that of the full Chancery Abstract but the abbreviated format provides the names of all defendants included in the final judgment, a listing of all the documents filed in the case and copies of pertinent pleadings. This is an alternative to the more lengthy format for those who do not require the full description of each of the filings in any given foreclosure case. The cost of the Post Judgment Certificate of Regularity is $165.00.

At your request, our experienced title officers will review your title search together with the Chancery Abstract to provide you with a report confirming that no necessary parties were omitted from the foreclosure proceedings.
