Title Insurance

Providing title insurance coverage is much more than filling in the blanks and issuing the title insurance policy.  It requires a careful examination of the underlying documents that preceded the present transaction and an analysis of their affect on the proposed development and the potential uses of the property.  In order to achieve the needed title insurance protection a careful examination and often revision of the proposed documents that will transfer and encumber the real property is necessary.  The real estate professionals providing the survey, and often the environmental due diligence, needed to carefully review the title documents in order to ensure that the requirements of the buyer and the lender are met.  The attention we pay to detail is crucial in protecting your most valuable possessions.
