Q: dose property have to be registered at the county clerk by persons who clams to own property and title at county record.
I'm trying to find the company name, at county record saying they have title and there no record of them to be found on registration
Yes, property deeds showing ownership are filed "registered" with the Land Records in the Circuit Court of each county. Clerks generally do not do any research to verify ownership. A title search would verify who owns a particular property. (Property owned by an entity may be more difficult to search and things like entity mergers can affect the entity name but a real estate attorney or title abstractor should be able to ascertain the record owner pretty quickly).
While not legal advice I hope this general information helps.
A: I know of no lawyers and, indeed, no title agents, who would check title themselves. Sure, most lawyers were taught how to do it in law school, and it's somewhat misleadingly available on the Internet for most states, but the correct answer remains to order a title search from a title abstractor working in your county. There are ways to conceal the name of a controlling party though corporate entities of a variety of types, and different states allow deeds to exist but be unrecorded in different circumstances with different end effects, but you need to consult a lawyer who covers real estate and gleans the facts from you in an interview to get a handle on that. There are many ways to quite legally conceal title, and there are many entertaining stories about how Disney built Disney World that way.
