Title Insurance

What does title insurance protect against?

Here are just a few of the most common hidden risks that can cause loss of title or create an encumbrance on title:

  • Defective acknowledgements due to improper or expired notary.
  • Conveyances by undisclosed divorced spouses
  • Rights of divorced parties
  • False impersonation of the true owner of the property
  • Forged deeds, releases or wills
  • Undisclosed or missing heirs
  • Instruments executed under invalid or expired power of attorney
  • Mistakes in recording legal documents
  • Misinterpretations of wills and other probate matters
  • Deeds by persons of unsound mind
  • Deeds by minors
  • Deeds by persons supposedly single, but in fact married
  • Liens for unpaid estate, inheritance, income or gift taxes
  • Fraud
  • False affidavits of death or heirship
  • Adverse possession
  • Title searcher's mistakes or omissions
  • Forfeiture of real property due to criminal acts

What protection does title insurance provide against defects and hidden risks?

Title insurance will pay for defending against any lawsuit attacking the title as insured, and will either clear up title problems or pay the insured's losses. For a one-time premium, an owner's title insurance policy remains in effect as long as the insured, or the insured's heirs, retain an interest in the property, or have any obligations under a warranty in any conveyance of it. Owner's title insurance, issued simultaneously with a loan policy, is the best title insurance value a property owner can get.

Dear Realty Title, I just wanted to let you know what exceptional service received each
and every time I have closed with Cheri Bayer at Realty Title. I just recently had a very difficult contract to close and Cheri helped me through it every step of the way. I will even go as
far to say that it may not have closed without all her hard work. She got my clients
to the table and made it as pleasant as possible. I will continue to use Realty Title
because of Cheri. She is just wonderful!

My experience with Realty title was by far better than I could have imagined. The process was seamless and stress free. I want to bring special recognition to Deanna Wood, our closing agent. She was fabulous to work with, and got our closing scheduled 2 days after I was approved. Customer service like this shows shows the strength of the company, and ensures that I will do business with Realty title again. Thank you for the great experience!
