Why does a buyer or a lender need title insurance?

Title insurance is a one-time fee that is paid at the time of settlement. The purchaser  receives an owner’s title policy that protects your most valued asset, your home, from  fraudulent claims against your ownership, liens, and undisclosed heirs, which are just  some of the reasons you need title insurance. This is where the assurances of title  insurance comes into play and provides protection. Problems with the title can limit your  use and enjoyment of the property, as well as bring financial loss. 

Here are some common title problems:

  • Fraud & Forgery 
  • Conflicting Wills 
  • Missing Heirs 
  • Incorrectly executed deeds by minors, corporations, heirs or non-entities 
  • The seller has fraudulently sold the property to another recent buyer.
  • A prior seller has fraudulently sold the property to more than one buyer. 
  • The seller purchased the property while committing mortgage fraud.  
  • The boundaries may be incorrect and part of the property may actually be owned  by an adjacent neighboring property owner. 
  • There may be an easement burdening the property which limits the use, which can  decrease the value of the property.
  • Structures on the property may encroach into valid easements or an adjacent  property. 
  • There may be an older unrecorded deed transferring the property which is now  recorded.  
  • The seller or prior seller may have outstanding personal judgments which could  attach to the property. 
  • Foreclosure sale issues
