Most real estate transactions involve one of,
if not the most valuable asset you own. Surely, protecting
your and your family's piece of mind is on the utmost importance.
With this in mind, before you close, you must be sure that
"title" (or record ownership) to the property will
be free and clear of all defects and encumbrances. Much like
other types of insurance protect your property against claims
such as fire, wind and flood, Title Insurance protects your
property from claims against it, such as:
· Others claiming ownership after you purchase
· Forged documents
· Challenges to past sales transactions in the chain
· Interests of spouses
· Clerical error at the courthouse when earlier documents
· Incorrect legal descriptions
· Instruments signed by minors or mentally incompetent
· Title taken as a result of an improperly probated
A Florida attorney can provide title insurance
to the purchaser of real estate, providing a guarantee by
way of the title insurance policy that you will obtain free
and clear title to the correct property. If such an encumbrance
is identified, your title insurance will pay for it, up to
the purchase price of the property, and/or provide your with
a free attorney to eliminate the encumbrance from your property.
