What is title insurance, and why is it necessary?
Title insurance protects an owner's and lender's interest in real estate. For homeowners it insures that they have title to real estate free of any liens, encumbrances or other title defects so that they can occupy, use and sell their real estate without the risk of loss.
Unlike other types of insurance, such as auto, health, home, and life, all of which protect against potential future events, title insurance protects against events that occurred in the past regarding the real property and prior owners. Also unlike other types of insurance for which monthly, bi-annual or annual premium payments must be made, title insurance premiums are paid once at the closing of the transfer of title to you and extends throughout your ownership of the property
What is the cost of title insurance?
Title insurance premiums are regulated by the State of Florida and are the same statewide. The amount of the premium varies and depends upon the purchase price of the property. In addition to an owner’s policy, if you finance your purchase, you will be required, at your expense, to obtain a lender’s policy in the amount of your loan to protect the lender’s security interest in the property.
