Title insurance provides peace of mind on your most valuable asset—your home—by protecting against adverse, unknown or undisclosed claims or interests that could result in financial hardship or loss of ownership. Choosing the right title insurance company is very important.
As a homebuyer, you have the right to choose which title insurer you use. When working with your real estate agent or lender, take the time to find a title insurance company that is: experienced, responsive, and has a reputation for prompt and fair claims-handling practices, as well as financial stability.
Every state has different laws, so make sure your title insurer has experience working in your area. It’s also important that your title insurance company has strong, established relationships with your local real estate professionals and lenders so the process runs smoothly.
During the home-buying process, title insurers closely examine your title to identify and address potential problems. That’s why it’s critical that the title company you choose follows state and federal regulations, looks to the American Land Title Association’s Best Practices, and does business with integrity.
Finally, make sure your title insurer has the financial strength to be there when you need it. For example, if there were to be a claim against your property regarding ownership rights, it’s important that your title company has the financial strength to defend you against any covered claim and to protect you from financial loss.
