What is Title Insurance?

Title insurance is a contract which indemnifies against loss arising through defect in the title to real property. If the title is insurable, the title company will guarantee against loss due to any defects in title not specifically set forth in the policy, and pay all expenses in defense of any lawsuit which attacks the title as insured within the terms of the policy.

Two Kinds of Title Policies

Owner's Policy - To protect against the many possibilities of loss due to title defects, a buyer of real property should purchase an owner’s policy.
Lender's Policy - Nearly all residential mortgages originated today are sold to investors, and the mortgage will likely require a lender’s policy to protect only the lender.

Hidden Risks Covered by Title Insurance

There may be defects in title which an examination may not disclose. A title policy protects against all of these hidden risks, and more...

*Marital property rights not disclosed of record
*Conveyances altered before recording
*Deeds by minors
*Deeds by persons supposedly single but secretly married
*Deeds by persons of unsound mind
*Deeds delivered after death of grantor, or without consent of the grantor
*Defective foreclosures of mortgages
*Errors made by administrators and executors
*Errors in copying and indexing
*False representations in appointment of guardians and administrators
*Falsification of records
*Forged deeds, releases, or wills
*Fraud, duress, or coercion in securing essential signatures
*Illegal acts of trustees
*Instruments executed under expired or fabricated power of attorney
*Impersonations by fraudulent persons
*Liens for unpaid estate, inheritance, income, and gift taxes
*Undisclosed or missing heirs


Some important points to know about title insurance
