What is Title Insurance?

Title Insurance is a contractual obligation between a purchaser of property and the Insurance Company by which the insurer, in exchange for a premium, protects the consumer against future losses which might arise from defects of title.

What are defects of title?

Although title defects vary, typical title defects include outstanding mortgages, liens, and unpaid taxes.

Why do I need title insurance?

When purchasing property, you expect and deserve to take ownership free from the financial obligations of others. Title insurance guarantees that when you close on a property, you are protected from future losses that might arise from title defects. If a previous owner had unpaid taxes or an unreleased mortgage, title insurance will protect you from having to assume those financial obligations.
