Title Insurance in Berks County, PA

Berks County Title Quote

Although your bank will require you to purchase a lender’s title insurance policy for any real estate transaction, owner’s title insurance is an optional purchase for homeowners. While title insurance is optional for homeowners, it is highly recommended for any real estate transaction, including refinancing. Without title insurance, unknown title defects could come up in the future, costing you time and money. You can even lose your ownership rights if there is a gap in the chain of title. The most common title defects include:

  • Easements or rights and restrictions on the property
  • The property is included in a previously unknown will
  • Multiple parties claim ownership of the property
  • Unpaid IRS taxes from previous owners
  • Judgments
  • Utility issues
  • Documents related to the property were forged or erroneously filed in the past

These and other title defects may not show up on your initial title report, but you will still be responsible for resolving them if they ever become an issue. With title insurance for your home in Berks County, PA, you won’t have to worry about it.
