The biggest investment you will make in your lifetime will likely be purchasing a home. 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.
You pay the title insurance company a single premium which includes the cost of verifying clear title and covers you in case some fault is later discovered in the title.
The title company performs an extensive search on the property's title history. Through its research, the title company can almost always find any title problems that may arise and have these problems cleared-up prior to closing.
Because Real Estate Law is so complex, 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 owner's policy will describe the property and outline any recorded limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title insurance 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 your 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, unable to be built, or unsaleable. Any number of other complicated problems define "Defective title" or "Clouded Title." The title insurance company will discover these title problems, or if they miss them, protect you from financial loss - up to the amount of the policy.
