Yes! When you buy a home, you want to be certain it's safely yours. But even the most diligent search of the public records could fail to disclose a number of title defects:

  • A forged will or deed
  • A title transfer by someone under age
  • A married person conveying real estate without his or her spouse
  • Fraudulent impersonations
  • Secret marriages
  • Undisclosed heirs
  • Invalid divorces
  • False affidavits

These are just a few of the potential problems that could suddenly surface. Without the protection of title insurance, you'll be in jeopardy of losing your investment.
