Have you ever wondered why buyers need title insurance? The home may be new to the buyer, but every property has a history. A thorough title search can help uncover any title defects tied to the property. And, subject to the terms of the policy, the title insurance provides protection from title problems that may become known after the buyer closes the transaction. Some of these common title issues are:

  1. Errors in public records
  2. Unknown liens
  3. Illegal deeds
  4. Missing heirs
  5. Forgeries
  6. Undiscovered encumbrances
  7. Unknown easements
  8. Boundary/survey disputes
  9. Undiscovered will
  10. False impersonation of previous owner


Play it Safe
These and other issues are often covered by an owner's policy of title insurance. Home buyers should make sure they are protecting their investment with title insurance.
