What is Title Insurance?
In a nutshell, title insurance protects you against financial loss caused by covered title risks. It is your ownership right to a property, and when you close on that property, that ownership right is granted to you physically in the form of a deed, comparable to a receipt - your proof that you paid for a property that now belongs to you and nobody else's.
Title insurance is a policy that protects against someone else coming along later and challenging your title and your ownership rights.
Without title insurance, forgery, fraud, clerical errors, and more could come back to haunt you. You pay for your owner's policy only one time, at closing, and never have to pay for it again as long as you own your home.
Title insurance is not the same thing as homeowner’s insurance.

What kinds of things are covered under title insurance?
Title insurance will protect your property against any loss due to previous title defects, liens, or similar situations. You would be protected against losses from problems that arose prior to your purchasing the property. If Celebrity Title issued you a title insurance policy, your selected underwriter would defend you in court if there is a claim against your property, and would pay for covered losses.
