Buying a new home is one of life’s most gratifying experiences and might be the biggest investment you will ever make. As you approach closing day, however, all those details can be overwhelming. It’s easy to overlook the single most important step in the entire process—the purchase of title insurance on your wonderful new home.

 

What is Title?

Title is the legal right that a person has to the ownership and possession of land. Since it is possible that someone other than the seller has a prior legal right to the property that your buying, the premium coverage offered by the Homeowner’s Policy provides you with added peace of mind. There can be any number of prior problems that remain undisclosed even after the most careful search of public records. These prior hidden “defects” are very dangerous and sometimes are not discovered for months or even years after you purchase your home. You could be forced to spend substantial money on a legal defense to protect your rights. The Homeowner’s Policy helps protect you against covered losses and prior defects, and provides legal defense for covered risks.

 

Protect Your Investment

The Homeowner’s Policy provides the most complete title coverage available, including protection against undisclosed heirs, mistakes in recording or errors in tax records. Our basic coverage protects against prior covered matters, such as:

  • Someone claiming an ownership interest in your title
  • Leases, contracts, or options affecting your title
  • Someone claiming to have rights affecting your title due to forgery or impersonation
  • Someone having a right to limit your use of the land
  • Unmarketability of your title
  • A defective title

 

How Much Does Title Insurance Cost?

The single premium is directly related to the value of your home. Typically, it is less expensive than your annual auto insurance. It is a onetime-only expense, paid when you purchase your home, yet it continues to provide coverage for as long as you own the property.
