Public Record Retriever


BoatWiki - Definitions


A public record retriever can be defined as an individual or company that locates and provides public records. This includes court recordings, UCC recordings, tax liens and vital records. The public record retriever differs from a public record lookup in that a retriever is a real person whereas a lookup is an online do-it-yourself search.  Public record retrievers are also known as public record services or vendors.


Although public records can be found through online lookup websites, this can sometimes be a hit and miss proposition. A trained and experienced professional may provide more accurate results, but this will likely entail some additional fees.


Public records are important in boat title searches as they will help reveal liens and provide personal information about the boat's owner.


Public record retrievers are for the most part very professional and reliable. However, this should not preclude some due diligence in checking out the right provider.
