Sometimes clouds on title result from matters that could not be found in the public records or are not fully considered in the title search process. To help protect you in these events, it is recommended that you obtain an Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance to insure you against the most unforeseen problems.

Owner’s policy- based on the property’s total purchase price, protects only the home buyer’s interests in the property should a problem with the title arise. An owner’s policy will provide protection against ownership challenges, errors or omissions in deeds, mistakes in examining records, missed liens, forgery and undisclosed heirs, in addition to other problems that may arise. It is purchased for a one-time fee at closing and lasts as long as you or your heirs have an interest in the property.

Offering experienced counsel to property buyers

Property laws come from the federal government, but most states establish their own real estate laws to fit the needs of the community. The real estate closing process is the final transaction of a land purchase, in which the following items are transferred from seller to buyer:

  • Deed
  • Title
  • Title insurance policy
  • Agreed-on costs
