Unlike an abstract certification, the title certification actually does attest to the validity of the title. The most common example, until recently, of title certification involves an attorney issuing an opinion of the title that he or she has examined. Many areas no longer use abstracts, but rely primarily on attorney examination with an attorney's written opinion.
Still, much like the abstractor's certificate, the attorney's opinion extends the attorney's liability only to the recorded documents that he or she examined. This is also the same level of liability exposure that the title insurance policy entails.
