WHAT IS TITLE INSURANCE?

Title insurance protects homebuyers and mortgage lenders from problems with an ownership title when buying real estate. These may be problems that existed long before the current purchase, such as:

  • ~ outstanding property taxes
  • ~ fraud or forgery of previous paperwork
  • ~ a spouse or unknown heir who claims they own the property

WHY YOU SHOULD PURCHASE TITLE INSURANCE?

Pennsylvania Residential Settlements, Real Estate Closings, Title Services by Mid-Atlantic Title Company

Just as you purchase homeowner’s insurance to protect your home against fire or other catastrophes, you should also purchase an “Owner’s Title Insurance Policy” to protect your investment against defects in the title to your property.

Your lender will require that you purchase a “Lender’s Title Insurance Policy” to protect the lender for the amount of your loan. Your lender knows that, even though title to your property has been searched by a qualified title examiner, hidden defects in the chain of title may still exist. These hidden defects may give someone a claim against your property. Title insurance protects against these claims.

The “‘Lender’s Title Insurance Policy” only provides protection to the lender. To protect your interest in the property, you need to obtain an “Owner’s Title Insurance Policy” for the full value of the property.

The premium for an “Owner’s Title Insurance Policy” is a onetime fee collected at settlement, and your policy is valid for as long as you own your property. If you have a title claim while owning the property, your title insurance will (i) provide you with an attorney to defend your property interest in court, and (ii) settle and pay any claims against your property as a result.

Make sure your title insurance coverage is through a reputable company to be assured your claim will be paid. Mid‑Atlantic Title, LLC is issuing agent for two highly reputable title insurance companies: Chicago Title Insurance Company and Security Title Insurance Company of Baltimore.

WHAT DOES TITLE INSURANCE COST?

For most of us, purchasing a home and property represents the largest single investment we will make.

Title insurance protects real estate purchasers, and/or lenders, from losses that arise after the settlement, but results from unknown liens, encumbrances, or other defects upon the title that existed prior to settlement.

Examples of title defects include things like unpaid mortgages, judgments, or tax liens not paid by a previous owner, fraud or forgery of a prior deed or transfer, or a spouse or unknown heir who steps forward to make a claim against the title, unknown easements, confusion arising from the similarity of names, and more.

WHAT DOES TITLE INSURANCE COVER?

Title Insurance covers against a variety of hidden defects, the most common of which are as follows:

~ A forged will or deed that does not transfer title to the buyer

  • ~ Deeds, wills, and trusts that contain incorrect names
  • ~ Unpaid mortgages, judgments or tax liens
  • ~ Unknown Easements
    ~ Undiscovered Encumbrances
  • ~ Unknown Liens
  • ~ Incorrect notary acknowledgments
  • ~ Documents executed under an expired or fabricated power of attorney
  • ~ A signature of a minor or mentally incompetent person
  • ~ Fraudulent misrepresentations
  • ~ Previously undisclosed heirs with claims against the property
  • ~ Invalid divorces
  • ~ False affidavits
  • ~ Sellers who misrepresent their marital status
  • ~ Disputed Ownership and Boundaries
  • ~ Clerical errors in the land records office of the courthouse
  • ~ Public Record Errors
  • ~ Confusion arising from the similarity of names
  • ~ Undiscovered wills

These and other examples of hidden defects can result in a claim being made against your property.  Owner’s Title Insurance protects you against these claims. Title claims can be costly and may prevent you from selling or refinancing your home. Make sure you protect your investment in your property with the purchase of an Owner’s Title Insurance Policy.
