Why do I need title insurance?
For most Americans, our home is the single largest financial investment we ever make. Most importantly, it's where we raise our families, share time with friends and live our lives. While ownership of our home may seem very straightforward, our rights to enjoy our property aren't always as clear. There are literally dozens of ways in which your title to - and your ownership of - the property can be jeopardized. The title insurance industry and the policies it provides exist to ensure that title issues don't affect your home ownership rights.
