Title insurance not only protects you in the event of a claim, but it actually minimizes your risks up front.
Title insurance is an exceptional value. Unlike other types of insurance, it is paid only once at the time of purchase or settlement. And is generally only about 1% or less of the cost of the property.
Ultimately, the choice is yours but your lender, real estate agent, real estate attorney or other real estate professional are excellent sources for referrals. Make sure you look for a company with expertise, financial strength and a dedication to quality customer service, a company like First American Title.
Escrow is an arrangement in which a neutral, disinterested third party, or escrow holder, holds legal documents and funds on behalf of everyone involved in the transaction and completes the transaction in strict accordance with their written instructions. Using a qualified escrow officer reduces risk and delay.
