What Is Title Insurance and Why Do I Need It?

In short, title insurance is an insurance policy that will protect you (the landowner)

But, why do I need title insurance?

Well title insurance can help protect you (the landowner) and it can also make sure you are receiving the certain privileges you are entitled to as a land owner.

A home is usually the largest single investment any of us will ever make. Title insurance protects against loss of value from hazards and defects that may exist in the title. These hazards include fraud, forged signatures on deeds, unknown property heirs, liens, and documentation errors. If you were uninsured and your right to title is challenged, you could lose significant money defending yourself or you could lose your home. Your mortgage lender will require a loan policy of title insurance to protect their interest in the value of your property and a homeowner should purchase an owner’s policy for the very same reason.
