Title insurance is a type of insurance that protects your ownership rights to a property. It covers any issues or defects in the title, such as liens, encumbrances, or other claims against the property. Without title insurance, you could be at risk of losing your investment or facing legal disputes over ownership rights.

There are two types of title insurance: lender’s title insurance and owner’s title insurance. Lender’s title insurance is typically required by your mortgage lender and protects the lender’s investment in the property. Owner’s title insurance is optional but highly recommended, as it protects your investment in the property and ensures your ownership rights are secure.

At Russell Law Offices, we have extensive experience working with clients on real estate transactions and guiding them through the process of obtaining title insurance. We understand the importance of having clear title to a property and the potential risks of not having proper coverage. Our team of knowledgeable attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of title insurance and ensure that you have the protection you need for your real estate investment.
