What Is Title Insurance?

Title insurance is an insurance policy that protects your legal rights to own, possess, use, control and dispose of real estate.

Why Do I Need Title Insurance?

An Owner’s Title Insurance Policy is a contract that protects you against the loss or damage due to title defects. For most people, purchasing a home is the biggest financial investment they will ever make and protecting that investment is of the utmost importance.

What Will Homesale Settlement Do For Me?

Our closing officers are experts in providing exceptional service to help your real estate transaction close smoothly. As a leader in the industry, our settlement affiliate also offers an Enhanced Owner’s Policy that provides more coverage to you at very little additional cost. This policy offers protection not found in the standard owner’s policy and expands your coverage by providing more protection into the future. Additionally, we will do the following:

  • Perform a title search and examination that will provide the basis for the title insurance policies issued to you and your lender.
  • Serve as liaison to all parties including you mortgage lender, real estate agent, municipal authorities and any others who may be involved in your real estate purchase.
  • Provide escrow services and prepare the closing statement of your actual closing costs.
  • Conduct the closing where the sellers will sign the deed and other documents necessary to convey title and the buyers will sign their mortgage papers and pay closing costs plus the balance of any down payment due.
  • The one-time title insurance premium, which is a state filed rate, is paid at closing and will provide protection to you for as long as you or your heirs own the property.
  • Record your new deed in the courthouse, after settlement, disburse all funds and relevant documentation to the proper parties and issue your new title insurance policy.
