Assignment Verification Reports are crucial in determining if a loan is a beneficial commodity. Seasoned loans have a high probability of incorrectly prepared assignments located in the chain, which can result in a cloud on the title.

The best practice would be to order an AVR on any loan with a less-than-certain history to verify that all assignments were prepared and recorded correctly.
