Title Insurance:
Title Insurance protects from future loss if a covered claim against your property is made. There are two types of title insurance:

  • A Loan Policy protects the lender for the amount of the loan. If you only have a Loan Policy, you are not protected if a problem materializes with your title.
  • An Owner’s Policy protects you and your property- your equity. Addtionally, the Owner’s Policy provides assurance that your title company will stand behind you if a covered title problem arises after you buy a home.
