Purchasing a home is probably the single biggest investment you will ever make. So before you close, you need to be sure that that nobody else can claim the property.
A title insurance 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 company can usually identify any title problems that may arise and have these problems cleared-up before you close on the property.
Real Estate law is extraordinarily complex. Title companies make sure that all the T's are crossed and all the I's are dotted so you don't end up with a clouded title and legal problems. 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 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 at no expense to you.
- Defective title — "Defective title" covers any number of problems with the title to your home. It can even include a "contested title". Defects are rare, but they can be very difficult, making the property inaccessible, unbuildable, or unsaleable. Any number of other complicated problems define "Defective title." The title company will discover these problems, or if they miss them, insure your loss up to the amount of the policy.
