by Carteret Title Nationwide Title Company
When you are looking to invest in buying a new home, it is essential to proceed through with all the needful steps to secure your legal right over the property, which titles insurance. Title insurance includes several components and factors, which we are going to discuss in this article.

When you are buying a new home, its title defines your ownership to the property along with the specifics of the property. The last thing you would want is getting off-guard by someone claiming their ownership over your newly bought property. This is why securing your legal rights with title insurance becomes a vital aspect.

But title insurance is not a simple and easy task. It contains a whole lot of factors, right from title search up to understanding different rules and regulations, and settlement. Here, we list down 3 important factors you must be well aware of related to the title when buying a new property:

Title Search

The first and foremost process when you want to close the property settlement is to work with a reliable title service company. The examiners will find and look through all the related documents related to property ownership, history and transactions. This helps to determine who the real owners are of the property, chains of title, issues related to the property as well as unresolved problems. A title search also provides information about your limitations to the use of property in one way or another.

Issue Resolution

Whatever the issue is related to the property, as the failure in payment of due taxes, ownership with another partner, mistakes in deeds, conflicting wills, forgery and so, the sellers need to settle those issues before you proceed with the closing. If there is more than one owner, then all of them are required to sign the closing documents.
 
Lender’s and Owner’s Policy

If the buyer is looking to finance the property purchase with a mortgage then the lender might require a lender’s policy which protects them against any payment or fee loss in case of issues with the property title. This is where you must look for lender’s title insurance services, consulting with your title company.

An owner’s policy is to safeguard them in case of any issue that arises after the closing. For any complication during that time, this policy helps to recover the financial loss to the buyer, and sometimes even retaining of the property ownership rights.

After going through the complete search, finding the issues and having them resolved and understanding owner’s and lender’s policy, you must fully secure your rights to the property. This is where ensuring your property becomes an important aspect. Pick a quality, experienced and reliable nationwide title insurance company that can help you thoroughly in the complete title search and insurance process, along with property closing to give you peace of mind.
