What is Title Insurance?
Title Insurance is insurance protection against loss arising from problem connected to title to your property.
Before you purchased your home, it may have gone through several ownership changes and the land on which it sits may have changed hands many more times.
There may be a weak link in the ownership chain that could emerge to cause trouble: For example, someone along the way may have forged a signature in transferring title or there may be unpaid real estate taxes or other liens. Title insurance covers the insured party for any claims and legal fees that arise out of such problems.
