In any real estate sale or purchase transaction, a title company often plays an important part from the beginning of the process through the closing. Title companies assist sellers with transferring the title to the new owner, and they help buyers acquire titles. Title companies also perform title searches, provide title insurance, and handle escrow duties for buyers and sellers.
When buying and selling a piece of real estate, title insurance insures both the lender and the homebuyer against loss or damage in the event there are defects or encumbrances in the property title. Each title insurance policy is subject to specific terms, conditions and exclusions.
The 2 standard forms of title insurance policies are:
Yes! Buying a title insurance policy is a customary step all homebuyers should take prior to closing.
It is possible for defects to the title or liens on the property to remain unexposed at the time of closing.
An Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance will protect you from these and other threats to your ownership and title of real property. Title insurance coverage lasts for as long as you own your home.
A title is proof that the property owner is indeed in lawful possession of that property.
A title search involves retrieving documents that demonstrate all events over the life of the property.
When real estate is sold, a title company often is asked to search the property’s title history for defects which can adversely affect the property’s value. From the search, the title company prepares a report called a title abstract, or an even more extensive title history. Mortgage lenders generally require a title search before they will loan money.
Closings generally take place at a title and escrow company. In attendance are the seller, homebuyer, real estate agents and lawyers for the buyer and seller.
Also in attendance are the closing agent, the title insurance rep, and the escrow agent. All Purpose Title Company typically fulfills these three roles, coordinating and documenting the transfer of documents and money, disbursing funds, and taking care of numerous closing details.
