Predicting what might or could happen affecting your property in the future is gambling and taking a risk that is unnecessary.

By purchasing owner’s title insurance, the owner protects themselves from financial loss should an event develop regarding the rights to ownership of your property. There could be hidden title defects that prior title search had not discovered. Additionally, your owner’s title insurance will protect you from financial loss by paying the cost of defending against any covered claim.

How Title Insurance Policy Protects the Owner’s Interest

Some common examples of problems covered by an Owner’s Title Insurance Policy include:

  • Improper execution of documents
  • Mistakes in recording or indexing of legal documents
  • Forgeries and fraud
  • Undisclosed or missing heirs
  • Unpaid taxes and assessments
  • Unpaid judgments and liens
  • Unreleased mortgages
  • Mental incompetence of grantors on the deed
  • Impersonation of the true owners of the land by fraudulent persons
