Quick Guide to Title Insurance

What Is Title Insurance?

Title insurance is a type of liability insurance that protects lenders and owners of properties from financial loss occurring due to defects in a title to a property. Such an insurance is designed to protect real estate dealers with the most common claims filed such as back taxes, liens, and conflicting wills. Under the title insurance we have two types. One is the lender's title insurance, which the borrower purchases to guard the lender, and the other type is owner's title insurance, which is usually paid by the seller to protect the buyer's equity in the property.

Features and Benefits of Title Insurance

Below are the benefits of title insurance policy:

Indemnification of Insured or Third Party: The policy has broad coverage scope and indemnifies the insured for actual losses suffered by them or losses suffered by a third party. Indemnification could be on three counts. First, to reimburse losses suffered by a third party. Second, pay costs of defending legal claims on the property. Finally, to reimburse actual losses suffered by the insured due to decrease in market value of the property due to defects in title.

Compensation for Unplanned Encumbrance: If a third party claims a legal right that prohibits construction or development of the property, the policy could get triggered. Insurers can help defend the legal right in court or compensate for the loss of value in the property due to the lien or compensate for the breach of the restriction on the property.

Cover for legal costs and claim assessments: If a third party makes a claim related to an adjoining area of the concerned property that prohibits development, the insurance could help. Such cases are typically accompanied by a third party making a demand for compensation to allow development. Insurers can help challenge the third party’s claim to such adjoining property, and vacate the hindrance. Insurers will reimburse the cost of lawyer fees and claim assessment.

Why do you need Title Insurance Policy in India

Not having title insurance can expose both the transacting parties, in a real estate business, to significant risk of title defect. Any property can have an associated risk of unpaid taxes associated with it, which can pile up the financial burden for the homebuyer. A title insurance hence, can cover the buyer for as long as they own the property or have invested interest in it. Without title insurance in place, the financial burden of the claim for back taxes will solely come on to the buyer which can be distressing. Similarly, a lender’s title insurance can cover banks and other mortgage lenders from unrecorded liens, access rights and/or other known-unknown defects.

What are the types of Title Insurance

There are two known types of title insurance: lender’s title insurance and owner’s title insurance.

Lender’s title insurance: Lender’s title insurance is required to get a mortgage loan. This insurance protects the lenders against problems with the title to your property. So, If someone sues with a claim against your home then the lender’s title insurance policy will cover claims that affect the lender’s loan.

Owner’s title insurance: Owner’s title insurance will provide protection to the homeowner if someone sues them for a claim against the home from before the homeowner has purchased it.
