The biggest investment you will make in your life will likely be purchasing a home. Before closing on the house, you will want to know that no individual or entity has a claim or lien to the property.

Determining that your rights and interests to the property are clear is the business of a title insurance company.

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 company performs an extensive search on the property's title history. Through its research, the title company can almost always find any title problems and clear up these problems prior to closing.

Because Real Estate Law is so complex, 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 title insurance owner's policy will describe the property and outline any recorded limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title company is responsible for. Title insurance covers the following:

  • Contested title — This usually happens when someone who owned or even lived in the home before you claims to still hold an interest. 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". Other examples of title defects include problems with legal access to the property, easements that make the property less usable, unusable, or unsaleable. Many other complicated problems define "Defective title" or "Clouded Title." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company misses them.
