The services we provide for a real estate closing are covered by a small, one-time fee.

Before a transaction involving a purchase of a home or refinance of a mortgage is completed, good or marketable title should be obtained.

One of the most important services we can offer to you as a buyer is to ensure that you are obtaining good or marketable title to the real estate you are purchasing.

A review of the abstract of title and a search of the land records is completed to determine ownership, claims, legal documents and other matters that may affect the property.

There are two types of Title Insurance:

  • Mortgage Title Insurance
  • Fee of Owner’s Title Insurance

Mortgage Title Insurance is required by the lender. It insures the lender for the original amount of the loan against any title defects that may arise after the mortgage closing. A mortgage title policy issued to a lender does not provide coverage for or protect the owner.

Fee of Owner’s Title Insurance is issued to the owner and protects the owner’s interest in the property.

We highly recommend that you obtain an Owner’s Policy and will discuss the benefits with you prior to your real estate transaction.

“Ut non justo et turpis sodales interdum ac in nisi. Sed ut tempor felis. In hac habitasse platea dictumst.”

  • Negotiation of the contract
