Frequently Asked Questions


A property deed is proof of your ownership interest in real estate.

Title insurance protects real estate owners and lenders against any property loss or damage they might experience because of liens, encumbrances or defects in the title to the property. Each title insurance policy is subject to specific terms, conditions and exclusions.

The lender’s policy of title insurance lasts until the mortgage is paid in full. An owner’s policy of title insurance lasts for as long as you or your heirs retain an interest in the property.

In real estate business and law, a title search or property title search is the process of retrieving documents evidencing events in the history of a piece of real property, to determine relevant interests in and regulations concerning that property.

A thorough title search can help uncover any title defects tied to your property. Subject to the terms of the policy, your title insurance provides protection for you from title problems that may become known after you close your transaction.
