RESIDENTIAL CLOSINGS


What is Title Insurance?

Title insurance protects both homebuyers and lenders from the possibility that a seller may not have clear ownership of the house and property they are selling, therefore making the seller unable to transfer full ownership to the buyer.

Who Pays for Title Insurance?

With the exception of Sarasota, Collier, Miami-Dade and Broward counties, in every other Florida county, the seller chooses the title company and pays for the title costs. Therefore, the buyer chooses the title company and pays for the title costs in Broward, Miami-Dade and Collier Counties.

Do I have to Buy Title Insurance?

A mortgage lender requires the purchase of a lender’s title insurance policy when you take out a loan to purchase your new home. A lender's title insurance policy provides a safeguard to the lender for the full amount of the loan, protecting the lender's investment in the property.

An owner’s title insurance policy is an optional purchase. However, this owner's policy is an important one as it protects the buyer for the full amount of the property’s value.
