Your home may be the single most important and costly asset you will ever own. The way in which you own your property, whether it be alone, with a business partner, or with your spouse it is commonly referred to as your “title”. Oftentimes, a document will dictate how a property is titled. This document is called a deed and will come in many different forms. Problems with the title to your property can limit your use and enjoyment of real estate, as well as bring financial loss. Protection against hazards of title is available through a unique coverage known as title insurance. Unlike other kinds of insurance that focus on possible future events and charge an annual premium, title insurance is a one-time payment and is a safeguard against loss arising from flaws and defects already existing in the title.What sets Owen & Dunivan, PLLC Apart from Other Title Companies?
