TITLE INSURANCE and HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE

Let's demystify these essential safeguards.


Title Insurance: Your Guardian Angel


Title insurance is the guardian in securing your property ownership. Within the realm of real estate, unforeseen title defects can and do emerge daily, ranging from inaccuracies in public records to undisclosed liens, jeopardizing your ownership rights. Title Insurance shields you ensuring your legal ownership remains intact. Unlike typical insurance policies, Title Insurance is a one-time purchase made at closing, providing coverage for as long as you own the policy.


Homeowners Insurance: Your Safety Net


While Title Insurance guards against past challenges, Homeowners Insurance shields you from present and future uncertainties. Whether it's from a fire damaging your home, to the theft of your belongings, or unexpected natural disasters, Homeowners Insurance has your back. This ongoing protection covers property damage and potential liability for injuries or damages caused by you or your property. Reach out to your agent for a complete overview of coverage, they are your first and best resource for protecting you, your home, and your belongings.


Understanding the Key Differences


The main differences between these insurances lies in their coverage focus.

Title Insurance protects your rights to the property from historical issues dated prior to the closing date, while Homeowners Insurance provides physical property coverage from the moment you take ownership into the foreseeable future.


What does that mean for you?


While both title insurance and homeowners insurance are essential for protecting your investment in your home, they serve very different purposes and cover different risks. By understanding the key differences between the two types of insurance, property owners can ensure that they have the coverage they need to protect their investments. Together, title insurance and homeowners insurance work hand in hand to protect you, your family, and your investment.
