Beall Abstract and Title… a Sweetwater staple is finally closing its doors after a long and storied history in the heart of West Texas. As the small crowd of loyal supporters of Beall join in the entrance area of the Beall building on Oak street of our small town, you could see the traditional and professional attributes that the employees of Beall abstract practiced. Support and appreciation for the company came out of the wood works today as cake and tea were served. Some attendees were Richard Fergeson, Sweetwater’s StateFarm agent, Jim Wilks and Pete Sheridan, local attornies for the Sweetwater area.
Beall Abstract and Title company has served the Nolan County area and the city of Sweetwater since 1909. They have worked to proof, revise and insure real estate titles while making sure taxes on said titles are paid and the leans are low on said property. This industry is closely related to the real estate industry as they go hand in hand. Realtors sell the house or property to a customer, while lenders work to make the title valid and able to sell. They do this by building a plant and index, which is a overall history of how a property is handled and who owned it throughout its history on the market. Building plants usually revolves around obtaining this information from the county and district clerks.
