Purchasing lender’s title insurance is required for those working with a lender to purchase a home or refinance their mortgage. In addition to the lender's policy, an owner's policy protects homeowners and their heirs against a multitude of potential problems, including unpaid taxes and assessments, forgeries and fraud, and unpaid judgments and liens. When the lender’s policy and owner’s policy are purchased together, the total insurance premium can often be reduced.
A title abstract is an examination of a particular parcel of land’s title history. Title abstracts are performed whenever property changes hands. Vintage Title’s lawyers conduct a thorough title examination of each abstract to ensure the property is free and clear of any encumbrances that might affect your rights.
