Property Examination (Abstract)

By the early 2000’s our business primarily covered North Alabama and Southern Tennessee. By 2005 we developed a great relationship with over 150 clients across the US and a few overseas. Each year thereafter we averaged 6000 searches. Although the Real Estate downturn affected our business, CFEA maintained a relationship with several large Title companies and in 2016 we expanded our coverage to every county in the great State of Alabama. We believe our team of abstractors is the best Alabama has to offer and our Quality Control Department minimizes incomplete searches and errors in our reporting. We carry $1,000,000 E&O Insurance and never had a claim. We are members of several Title related organizations and when you contact us, we respond to every question or concern with charming southern professionalism.

Other services we offer

private investigations

CFEA has been in the Investigation business for over 30 years. We work exclusively for attorney’s both plaintiff and defense. One of our investigators has developed an excellent reputation for criminal defense work that requires an appointment by the presiding Judge. Alabama has Licensed Investigators and CFEA is exempt.

registered agent representation

We act as a third-party in Alabama, where the business entity is established with the Alabama Secretary of State Corporate Division. We are designated to receive service of process notices, correspondence from the Secretary of State, and other official government notifications. We offer this service through HUBCO or PARASEC. 

service of process

We serve legal documents, both residential and commercial from Middle to North Alabama and Southern Tennessee. Our competitive pricing varies by distance and includes two attempts and we do not charge an additional fee for Notary or mileage. Our first attempt is usually within 24 hours of receipt. 

We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
