What is title insurance?
Title Insurance offers you information on the status of the title to land before you buy - and protection against claims that may affect the title after you buy. Here's how it works: Before your real estate transaction closes, the public records are searched to find all related official documents. These documents are then examined for their effect, and form the basis of the title insurance policy.
If the status of title is cleared before you buy, why do you need title insurance? Because even after the most careful research, some title flaws - such as forgery, fraud or confusion due to similar names - may go undetected. These problems may surface at any time in the future.
Real estate investment demands the best possible protection. Remember, you need title insurance just as much as your lender. In the event of a claim against your property, title insurance will protect you against loss resulting from any title risk covered by the policy (up to the policy amount); and costs, attorney's fees and expenses occurred from the loss.
