PROTECTS YOUR LARGEST INVESTMENT

A home is probably the single largest investment you will make in your life. You insure everything else that’s valuable to you—your life, car, health, pets, etc., so why not your largest investment? For a one-time fee, owner’s title insurance protects your property rights for as long as you own your home.

REDUCES YOUR RISK

If you’re buying a home, there are many hidden issues that may pop up only after you purchase your home. Getting an owner’s title insurance policy is the best way to protect yourself from unforeseen title discrepancies. Don’t think it will happen to you? Think again. Title claims can include:

  • Outstanding mortgages and judgments, or a lien against the property because the seller has not paid his taxes
  • Pending legal action against the property that could affect you
  • An unknown heir of a previous owner who is claiming ownership of the property

YOU CAN’T BEAT THE VALUE

Owner’s title insurance is a onetime fee that’s very low relative to the value it provides. It typically costs around 0.5% of the home’s purchase price.
