Common Questions & Answers
From general title insurance inquiries to FirstVision specific questions, we've got you covered.
What is Title Insurance?
Unlike your automotive or home insurance policies, title insurance is a one-time fee at closing that protects you and your heirs against certain claims to your property. During the closing process, we will verify the records and deed of your new property. However, records aren’t always complete, and claims do happen. If a better claim to your property is in fact made in the future, title insurance protects your investment by offering protection against financial loss, or worse, the loss of your property.
What is the difference between and Owners Policy and a Lenders Policy?
If you purchase your property with the use of a loan, your lender will have a Lenders Policy. This policy protects the lender against the same kind of claims against the property but is not extended to you. In order for you to be covered, you will need to purchase an Owners Policy.
Why do I need title insurance?
Hidden title issues are still a challenge as records and property histories cannot always be verified to the standard we wish was possible. While this issue is not the fault of your searcher or yourself, <em>Title Insurance</em> provides financial protection for you and your family to ensure that your claim to your property remains yours even if a claim does arise.
