Buying a home will likely be the biggest investment you make in your lifetime. So before you close, you need to be sure that that nobody else has a claim to the property.
Determining that your rights and interests to the property are clear is the business of a title 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 searches the title history of the property. Through its research, the title insurance company can usually find any title problems and have these problems cleared-up before you close on the property.
Real Estate law is extraordinarily complicated. 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 the limitations on your ownership. It will also cover what the title company is responsible for. Title insurance covers the following:
- 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 company will defend the title and will cost you nothing.
- 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. Many other complicated problems define "Defective title." The title company will uncover these title problems, or should they miss them, insure your loss up to the amount of the policy.
