What Is Title Insurance
Title insurance will protect an owner’s or a lender’s financial interest in real property against loss due to title defects such as fraudulent conveyances, unpaid liens, boundary issues, and other matters. It will defend against a lawsuit attacking the title as it is insured, and/or reimburse the insured for the actual monetary loss incurred, up to the dollar amount of insurance provided by the policy. It is important to understand that these claims can arise from a past event that could not be discovered in a public record search, making title insurance a key value.
Most of the industrialized world uses land registration systems for the transfer of land titles. Under these systems, the government makes the determination of title ownership based on the registration of the instruments transferring the title. With only a few exceptions, the government’s determination is conclusive. It should be noted that governmental errors in such transfers will lead to monetary compensation to the party damaged by the error but that aggrieved party usually cannot recover the property. Title insurance was developed in the United States in the 1800s as a result of a deficiency of the U.S. land records laws which were based on the land registration system.
