How do I obtain title insurance and what does it cost?
Let the title company, attorney or agent handling the closing of your property know that you want to purchase an Owner's Title Insurance Policy. When choosing a title insurer, look for a company with experience, as well as the financial strength to protect you. In most states, the insurance commission or some other governmental body controls the premiums for title insurance policies. You only pay the premium once. The cost depends upon the purchase price of the property, and your policy amount must be equal to the purchase price.
How long does my coverage last?
Once purchased, title insurance remains in effect for as long as you own your property. Title insurance adds security and peace of mind to homeownership.
