Title Search and Exam
Title insurance requires an extensive title search of the property to ensure that it is not limited by rights and claims asserted by others, which could limit your ability to use and enjoy the property. Even worse, these claims could bring financial loss. An in-depth title search will limit the potential liability to the property owners by discovering any potential issues ahead of time while the title company works to resolve them.
Title insurance protects lenders and homebuyers from financial loss sustained from defects in property’s title. The most common claims filed against titles are back taxes, liens, easements, and conflicting wills. A title claim could arise at any time, even after you’ve owned the property.
Title curative is a set of procedures used to “cure” defects in a chain of title. This requires a well-trained staff of title officers who work to complete a thorough examination of the property for sale and identify and resolve all title problems identified in the examination process. This could be correcting documents that are erroneous or ambiguous on prior liens, improper transfers of title, delinquent taxes, etc.
