Title Insurance


Why Title Insurance?

A home is usually the largest single investment any of us will ever make. When you purchase a home, you will purchase several types of insurance coverage to protect your home and personal property. Homeowner’s or hazard insurance protects against loss from fire, theft or wind damage. Flood insurance protects against rising water. And a unique coverage known as title insurance protects against hidden title hazards that may threaten your financial investment in your home


Title Insurance protects you from:

  • Forgery of deeds, releases and other documentation
  • Title obtained under improperly probated will
  • Undisclosed or missing heirs, or heirs born after the date of a will
  • Human errors at Registry of Deeds
  • Deeds by minors or persons of unsound mind
  • Invalid documents executed under expired power of attorney
  • Invalid deeds delivered after death of grantor
  • Homestead rights of a spouse not included on the deed
  • Unrecorded easements
  • Incorrect legal property descriptions
  • Missing or improperly indexed liens and discharges
  • False impersonation
