Purchasing a home is probably the largest investment you will make in your lifetime. So before you close, you need to know that nobody else can claim the property.
A title insurance company ensures that your new home doesn't carry 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 searches the property's title history. Through its research, 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 complex, 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 owner's policy will describe the property and outline any recorded limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title insurance company is responsible for. Title insurance usually covers:
- Contested title — This usually happens when someone who owned or even lived in the home before you claims to still hold an interest. If this happens, the title insurance company will defend your title at no expense to you.
- Defective title — This is a general term for a legal problem with the title that cannot be corrected and includes "contested title" above. Defects are rare, but they can be very difficult, making the property inaccessible, unbuildable, or unsaleable. Any number of other complex problems define "Defective title" or "Clouded Title." The title company will uncover these problems, or should they miss them, insure your loss up to the amount of the policy.
