As real estate is the nation’s largest market, its purchase and sale are essential to the health of the U.S. economy. However, these transactions are never without risk. That’s why title insurance has been protecting American homeowners for more than 130 years.
WHAT'S TITLE INSURANCE? Owner’s title insurance is a policy that protects homebuyers’ property rights. For the same reasons the bank requires a lender’s insurance policy, the homebuyer obtains owner’s title insurance to protect their legal claims to the property.
HOW IT PROTECTS Say, for example, you recently purchased a new home from a builder, but the builder failed to pay the roofer. Wanting to be paid, the roofer filed a lien against the property. Without owner’s title insurance, your client would be responsible for paying this existing debt. This is just one example of how owner’s title insurance protects homebuyers from various significant risks
ENDURING VALUE The good news is that owner’s title insurance protects homebuyers legally and financially, as long as they own their home. For a low, one-time fee, homebuyers can rest assured, knowing they are protected against existing debts or claims to their property.#titleandescrow #titleinsurance #realestate #ALTA
