Title Insurance is a One-Time Purchase & the Policy Lasts as Long as You Own the Property
The great thing about getting a title policy is that you only have to pay one time. When you purchase an owner’s title insurance policy at the time of sale, it will cover you until you sell your home. If any title defects, property line issues, or undiscovered heirs should come up in the future, you won’t have to worry about them. While lenders are required to purchase lender’s title insurance for every transaction, homebuyers are not. That doesn’t mean you can go without! If any title defects come to light, we think you will find the one-time cost of your title policy will be well worth it.
One more thing: you have the right to choose your own title insurance company. Under federal law, it is illegal for any lender, attorney, realtor, or anyone else to mandate that you use a particular insurer. By choosing your own title insurance company for your real estate transaction in Lancaster County, PA, you can avoid any conflicts of interest.
