ON THE RECORD

Railroad Searches Are One Of Our Many Specialties!

Our office is the only office in Dane County and one of the few title companies in the state which supplies reports for current or former railroad-owned properties based upon the railroad records held at the office of the State of Wisconsin, Department of Financial Institutions.  Why is this significant?

Wisconsin Stats. §190.11(1) provides that “Every conveyance or lease, deed of trust, mortgage or satisfaction thereof made by any railroad corporation …shall be filed with department of financial institutions…”.  In addition, Wis. Stats. §190.11(2) indicates that such filings have the same effect and provide the same notice of rights and interest as to any property in the state as though the document had been filed in the office of the Register of Deeds for the particular county or counties in which the property is located.
