No matter the weather, it doesn’t hurt to have a little protection. A good umbrella protects you from rain, snow or even a little too much sunshine (blocking more than three-quarters of ultraviolet (UV) light on an especially sunny day). The best part, though? Umbrellas are light, compact, and easy to carry.
So why are we talking about umbrellas and sunscreen when talking about title insurance? Because an owner’s title insurance policy can help you protect what’s most valuable when it comes to real estate – your property rights. Allegiance Title is committed to providing exceptional service and a remarkable team dedicated to protecting your property rights from all dangerous elements that could rain on your parade.
What is Title Insurance?
Simply put, a land title is your ownership rights to your property. Title insurance is a policy that protects your investment and property rights. With a one-time fee, you and your heirs are covered for as long as you own your property against any legal claims against it. You’ll also be covered for any legal fees should a claim arise, which our team works to uncover before your closing.
We pore over public records to examine and verify the legal documents on the property you’re purchasing to ensure the title can be legally transferred to you. Once our search is complete, and your title is clear, we offer you an owner’s title insurance policy to help protect your property rights.
What Does Title Insurance Cover?
No one – not even the best meteorologists – can 100 percent accurately predict the weather. They can only make an educated guess. That’s why it pays to keep an umbrella handy – you never know when you’ll need it!
It’s no different with your property rights. Unforeseen errors can pose a huge risk to your ownership should someone later sue, saying they have a claim against your property. These might include:
- Forgery: The creation of a false document. For example, if the seller of the property misrepresents the identity of the person who signed the title.
- Fraud: Deception to achieve an unfair gain. This might look like someone stealing your identity and selling your house without your consent or taking out a second mortgage on the property in your name.
- Human error: Inconsistent paperwork or historical records that could lead to a boundary dispute.
