Purchasing a home is likely the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Before closing on the house, you will want to know that no other individual or entity has a claim or lien to the property.

A title company ensures that your new property won't surprise you with expensive encumbrances and other legal obstacles.

For a modest, one-time title insurance premium, you will receive continuous title insurance protection equal to the purchase price of the property or its current market value.

The title insurance company performs an extensive search on the property's title history. The title insurance company can almost always find any title problems that may arise and clear up these problems before you close on the property.

Because Real Estate Law is so complicated, you need an expert to make sure that all previous transactions have been correct, so you don't end up with legal problems or a problem selling your property. Your title insurance owner's policy will describe the property and outline any recorded limitations on your ownership. It will also set forth the title insurance company's responsibilities should any claim covered by the policy terms arise. Title insurance usually covers:

  • Contested title — Someone, usually a previous owner or occupant, claims they still own the property or have not given up their claim. If this happens, the title company will defend your title and will cost you nothing.
  • Defective title — "Defective title" covers any number of problems with the title to your home. It can even include a "contested title". Other examples of title defects include problems with legal access to the property, easements that make the property less usable, unusable, or unsaleable. Many other complicated problems define "Defective title" or "Clouded Title." The title company will discover these title problems, or if they miss them, protect you from financial loss - up to the amount of the policy.
