Policies protect owners against possible hidden title problems that can include errors or omissions in deeds, mistakes in examining records, forgery, and undisclosed heirs.””An owner’s policy provides assurance that your title company will stand behind you–monetarily and with legal defense if needed–if a covered title problem arises after you buy your home,”” Pellegrini said. “”Purchasing a home is often the single largest financial investment a family can make. Your owner’s title insurance policy can help minimize potential issues that could impede your property rights.””center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Title Insurance 2013-05-06 Tory Barringer Sharelast_img
