Why Purchase Buyer’s Title Insurance
Especially if you are paying cash for a piece of real estate, you should purchase title insurance to protect your investment. The title is your written proof that you own the land. Title insurance protects your ownership rights against unknown problems, including objections to your ownership of the property. Some common issues that title insurance can protect you against include:
- Fraud: Fraud might include false ownership claims, forged wills or forged signatures.
- Human error: Human error might include mistakes made when recording, copying or indexing property records.
- Invalid deeds and wills: These might include documents created by persons of unsound mind or by minors.
- Liens: Liens against property could include unpaid taxes and community property rights.
