On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Real Estate Law on Apr 11, 2014.
Title Insurance is an important protection for both owners and buyers in real estate transactions. Title insurance, as the name suggests, insures the policy holder against financial loss stemming from defects in title to real property. Many times these title defects are hidden to those involved in a transaction. Examples include improper legal description of the property, forged signatures, falsification of records, and title being taken by the wrong person after an improperly probated will.
