Title Insurance provides coverage for certain losses due to defects in the title that occurred prior to the Buyer’s ownership. The Seller can give only those rights that previously have been received with “good title.” Title insurance protects against defects such as prior fraud or forgery that might go undetected until after closing and possibly jeopardize your ownership and investment.
Title Insurance assures the new Buyers that they are acquiring marketable title from the Seller. It is designed to eliminate risk or loss caused by defects in title from the past. Title insurance protects the interest of the mortgage lender as well as the equity of the Buyer for as long as they or their heirs have any interest in the property.
