What is Title Insurance?
Title insurance is a form of indemnity insurance. This insures against financial loss from defects in title to real property. Also, from the invalidity or unenforceability of mortgage loans. There are two types of title policies: Owners and Lenders. Lenders require fire insurance. Also, other types of insurance coverage to protect their investment. Nearly all institutional lenders require title insurance (lender’s policy). This is to protect their interest in the collateral of loans secured by real estate. Some mortgage lenders, especially non-institutional lenders, may not require title insurance. Buyers purchasing properties for cash or with a mortgage lender often want title insurance to protect their interest as well. A loan policy provides no coverage or benefits for the buyer/owner. Your decision to purchase an owner’s policy is independent of the lender’s requirement of a loan policy.
What Will My Closing Costs Be?
Closing costs are best determined by your settlement agent or attorney. They can give you an estimate as to the actual closing cost. A loan estimate is also given to you by your lender. These costs may be a reasonable estimate. Also, they may vary depending on the costs from the service providers in your transaction.
