5 Things to Understand About Title Insurance

·        It protects the ownership right to the property both from fraudulent claims against ownership and from mistakes made in earlier sales, such as a mistake in the spelling of a person's name or an inaccurate description of the property.


·        Title insurance is a one-time cost usually based on the price of the property.


·        It's usually paid for by the sellers


·        There are both lender title policies, which protect the lender, and owner title policies, which protect the new buyer/ owner. The lender will probably require a lender policy.


·        Discounts on premiums are sometimes available if the home has been bought within only a few years since not as much work is required to check the title.
