The title insurance premium is a one-time premium paid at settlement when you purchase the property. Typically, there is a policy issued to the owner and one to the lender, if any. If you are borrowing money from a bank or mortgage company, the lender will require you to purchase title insurance to cover the loan amount. The owner is protected for the entire time he is in title to the property. Should a claim arise during that time period, the title insurance company would be responsible for settling same, if it is not specifically excluded from the insurance, including payment of legal fees.
As you can see, title insurance is something you cannot afford to be without. Although the title search may show title is free and clear, others may have a legitimate claim against your home in the future. Protect your investment with title insurance.
In addition, the title company makes sure that all real estate taxes and water and sewer bills are paid in full. Any open items will be paid at closing.
All documents necessary for transfer of title and financing are prepared and/or reviewed by the title company. A Closing Disclosure, ALTA Settlement Statement or HUD-I Settlement Statement is prepared for settlement.
Closings are scheduled for the convenience of the buyers and sellers and are held either in our office or an alternate location requested by the parties involved. All settlement statements, documents and checks are prepared prior to closing to minimize the amount of time at the closing table.
We are here to serve all of your title insurance and closing needs. Please feel free to call us with any questions or problems that may arise throughout the transaction. Our goal is to make your transaction as smooth and problem-free as possible.
