A title defect is any one of a number of things that could jeopardize your interest. It could be an unsatisfied mortgage, lien, judgment, or other recorded claim against the property. A defect could also take the form of a claim by a third party such as an unknown heir or prior owner whose title transfers by forgery or fraud.
Closing costs are defined as the costs associated with finalizing a real estate transaction. These fees are typically paid at the time of closing and can include things like appraisal fees, title fees, deed recording fees, legal fees, and more. They can vary widely from transaction to transaction and are typically reflected in the overall purchase price of a home.
Title insurance is essential in any real estate transaction to protect all parties from potential problems with the property’s title. A property’s title may not always be clear, and there could be defects or claims against it. Title insurance policies offer protection against any financial loss that may arise in connection with title defects or claims. Title insurance can provide peace of mind to both buyers and sellers by protecting against potentially costly title issues.
