Do I need Title Insurance?

Most definitely! Title insurance is a means of protecting yourself from financial loss in the event that problems develop regarding the rights to ownership of your property. There may be hidden title defects that even the most careful title search will not reveal. In addition to protection from financial loss, title insurance pays the cost of defending against any covered claim.


But the Lender Already Requires Title Insurance. Shouldn’t that Protect me?

Not necessarily. There are two types of title insurance. A Lender’s Policy insures that your lender has a valid lien on the property. Most lenders require this type of insurance, and typically require the borrower to pay for it. An Owner’s Policy, on the other hand, protects your interest in the property. Title troubles, such as improper estate equity at serious risk if a valid claim is filed, in addition to financial loss up to the face amount of the policy, your owner’s title policy covers the cost of legal defense.


Should I shop Around for the Best Title Insurance Deal?

Some states closely regulate rates. Others permit open competition, often resulting in significant differences between title insurers on rates and coverage. Depending where you live, it pays to investigate your options carefully in order to obtain the most complete coverage.

You also want to work with a title insurer that responds readily to your needs and performs its complex tasks with great accuracy. It is vital, too, that you choose a title insurance company with the financial strength and stability to meet its obligations, through good times and bad, over the long term.
