Buying a home will likely be the biggest investment you make in your life. Before closing on the house, you will want to know that no other individual or entity has a right, claim or lien to 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 performs an extensive search on the property's title history. Through its research, the title company can usually identify any title problems that may arise and have these problems cleared-up 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 title insurance owner's policy will describe the property and outline the limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title company is responsible for. Title insurance covers the following:

  • 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 and will cost you nothing.
  • 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. Many other complex problems define "Defective title." The title company will find these problems, or should they miss them, protect you from financial loss - up to the amount of the policy.
