What is Title Insurance?

This is an insurance policy that insures against problems with title, zoning, building requirements and other defects that might diminish the value of your property. A title insurance policy may give you the option of avoiding more costly compliance searches with respect to building, zoning, work orders, subdivision agreement compliance, taxes, water and sewerage charges. Another benefit is that an up-to-date survey may not be required. Your lawyer will discuss with you the merits of obtaining a title insurance policy.
