Title Insurance

While title insurance amounts and coverages can be tailored to your specific needs, there are two primary types of policies that we offer:

ALTA Title Insurance Policies

Title insurance protection is significantly different from other lines of insurance. Typically, other types of insurance assume a particular risk and provide financial indemnity in the event the risk occurs. Title insurance, on the other hand, emphasizes loss prevention by eliminating risks caused by title problems arising from past events.

Owners Policy

This provides the buyer peace of mind knowing the title for their real estate is being transferred to them free from encumbrances and liens. This policy is typically paid by the seller and will be sent in the mail after closing, accompanied by the recorded deed.

Lenders Policy

This is most often required by the lender to not only insure there are no encumbrances and liens on the property, but to give them peace of mind that they can allow you to use this property as collateral for your new loan. This policy is paid by the buyer.

Endorsements

Endorsements are used to expand or otherwise modify the coverage of a title insurance policy on real property. There are various title insurance policies made available to owners of real property by title companies including standard coverage, ALTA (American Land Title Association) extended coverage, ALTA residential and ALTA homeowner’s coverage.
