Your Life Preserver
Title insurance is like a life preserver on a boat. You will probably never need it, but if you do, you will be very glad that it is there! How does title insurance work, and how does it protect you in the home buying process?
A title search will be ordered before you buy a home, to make sure that the sellers legally own the property, and that no one else has a legal interest in the home. The title company will also check through the ownership records for any liens, easements or other encumbrances on the title. This search should turn up any transactions that may not appear on the public record, such as an unsound transfer that occurred many years ago. Title insurance protects you against future claims against your home.
Your real estate agent can give you more specific information about the cost of title insurance and the types of coverage available in your area.

Real Estate Internet
Despite advertising claims to the contrary, the Internet is not
an experienced Real Estate Professional. It cannot consult, counsel, advise,
and have knowledge of local laws and market conditions, make judgments, "own"
the result, or most importantly, understand your individual goals and needs and
care about you as a Client. To obtain an accurate interpretation of any
