WHAT IS TITLE INSURANCE?


Title insurance is actually a process, with the insurance policy being the end product. This process starts with a comprehensive search of public records to determine if any liens or encumbrances are attached to the title.

During the search, detailed information from potentially hundreds of sources is gathered and reviewed, including tax records, federal, state, and local records, court judgments, deeds and an evaluation of whether the property characteristics are accurately reflected by the information on the title. Not surprisingly, one in four title searches uncovers some problem that must be rectified prior to close.
