We always advise our clients to get title insurance. Many title problems can arise and cause complete or partial loss of your home or business property. Even the most careful search of the public records will not find the detail and small title problems. There are some hidden problems, that only professionals can detect.
What is an owners title insurance?
An owners title insurance protects you against financial loss caused by covered title risks. As the insured, our underwriter will defend you against an attack on the title to your property without expense to you. If the attack is successful, the title insurer will indemnify you against the defined loss up to the policy limit. A small, one-time premium provides you with this valuable protection.
