Title Companies

Title Companies and the Department of Child Support Services

Title companies play a vital role in securing past support owed to the children of Ventura County. Annually, our department collects millions of dollars for children and families. A significant portion of the funds collected are obtained through liens.

Title companies have 5 principal responsibilities:

  • Research the County Recorder’s Office to determine if there is a lien
  • Notify our office of a pending sale
  • Send our office a request for Satisfaction of Judgment along with a copy of the recorded abstract
  • Comply with the demand letter
  • File the Satisfaction with the Recorder’s Office once the funds have been sent to the Department of Child Support Services

When your company complies with the recording guidelines, you are helping your business and the community in many ways:

  • You help kids!
  • You reduce fraud and errors
  • You save taxpayers’ money
  • You contribute to a stable workforce
