Purchasing a home is likely the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime. So before you sign on the dotted line, you want to be sure that the property's title is free of other claims.
Determining that your rights and interests to the property are clear is the business of a title 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 identify any title problems that may arise and have these problems cleared-up prior to closing.
Real Estate law is extraordinarily complex. Title companies make sure that all the T's are crossed and all the I's are dotted so you don't end up with a clouded title and legal problems. Your 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 — 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 the 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." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company misses them.
