Why Title Ins

Types of Title Insurance Policies

Title insurance is typically a combination of two policies: an Owner’s Policy and a Lender’s Policy.

Owner’s Policy

As a buyer, you want to protect your investment – and the ownership rights that come with it. An owner’s policy of title insurance will protect your rights as the homeowner for as long as you or your heirs have an interest in the property.

Lender’s Policy

If you are working with a lender to purchase a home or refinance an existing mortgage, purchasing title insurance is a lender requirement. This policy protects the bank or other lending institutions for as long as they maintain an interest in the property.

When purchased simultaneously with an owner’s policy, the lender’s premium is reduced to a simultaneous issue fee – 100.00-125.00, depending on the type of policy. Mortgaging or refinancing the existing mortgage in the future can also afford the property owner a reissue rate discount which could save as much as 40% of the lender’s premium.
