The biggest investment you will make in your life will probably be the purchase of a home. Before closing on the house, you will want to know that no individual or entity has a lien or claim to the property.

A title company ensures that your new home is free of expensive encumbrances and other legal obstacles.

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 title history of the property. Through its research, the title company can almost always identify any title problems and have these problems cleared-up before you close on the property.

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 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 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". Defects are rare, but they can be very difficult, making the property inaccessible, unbuildable, or unsaleable. Any number of other complex problems define "Defective title" or "Clouded Title." The title insurance policy will protect you from these errors if the title company misses them.
