Purchasing a home is likely the biggest investment you will ever make. So before you close, you need to know that no one else can claim 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 insurance company searches the property's title history. Through its research, the title insurance company can almost always find any title problems and have these problems cleared-up prior to closing.

Real Estate law is extraordinarily complicated. 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 title insurance owner's policy will describe the property and outline the limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title company is responsible for. Title insurance usually covers:

  • Contested title — Someone, usually a previous owner or occupant, claims they still own the property or have not given up their claim. If this happens, the title insurance company will defend the title at no expense to you.
  • Defective title — This is a general term for a legal problem with the title that cannot be corrected and includes "contested title" above. Defects are rare, but they can be very difficult, making the property inaccessible, unbuildable, or unsaleable. Many other complex problems define "Defective title." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company doesn't discover them.
