The purchase of a home is, in most cases, the largest financial commitment in your lifetime. Title insurance is not as well understood as other types of home insurance. It is, however, equally important when it comes to protecting your investment.
What kind of problems can a title search reveal?
A thorough title examination is necessary but it does not disclose all hazards or "hidden risks". Hidden risks are those matters, rights or claims that are not shown by the public record and therefore, are not discoverable by a search and examination of those public records. Matters such as forgery, incompetency or incapacity of the parties, fraudulent impersonation and unknown errors in the records are examples of "hidden risks" which could provide a basis for a claim after you have purchased the property.
