The biggest investment you will make in your lifetime will likely be the purchase of a home. So before you commit to the transaction, you want to be certain that the "title" of the property is clear of other claims.
A title insurance company ensures that your new home doesn't carry encumbrances and other legal obstacles.
You pay the title insurance 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 company searches the property's title history. Through its research, the title company can usually find any title problems and clear up these problems prior to closing.
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 with the title to your property. Your 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 — Someone, usually a previous owner or occupant, claims they still own the property or have not given up their claim. In this case, 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". 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 insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company misses them.
