Buying a home may be the largest investment you make in your life. Before closing on the house, you'll want to know that no other individual or entity has a lien or claim to the property.

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 title history of the property. Through its research, the title insurance company can usually identify any title problems that may arise 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 selling your property. Your title insurance owner's policy will describe the property and outline the limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title insurance company is responsible for. Title insurance usually covers:

  • 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 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". Other examples of title defects include problems with legal access to the property, easements that make the property less usable, unusable, or unsaleable. Any number of other complicated problems define "Defective title." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company misses them.
