Purchasing a home is likely the single largest investment you will ever make. So before you close, you need to know that nobody else has a claim to the property.

A title company ensures that your new property is free of expensive encumbrances and other legal obstacles.

You pay the title company a single premium which includes the cost of verifying clear title and covers you in case some fault is later discovered in the title.

The title insurance company searches the title history of the property. The title insurance company can usually find any title problems 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 owner's policy will describe the property and outline any recorded limitations on your ownership. It will also set forth the title company's responsibilities should any claim covered by the policy terms arise. Title insurance covers the following:

  • 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 insurance 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. Any number of other complex problems define "Defective title." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company doesn't discover them.
