About Title Insurance
Title insurance protects owners and lenders with the assurance of clear uncontested ownership of title to real property. Title agents, working with affiliated professionals--abstractors, examiners, surveyors, settlement companies, county clerks, and closers--research and resolve all issues related to the assurance of title. The title agent also works with a title insurance underwriter to provide any of a number of policies called for in the transaction. See our FAQ for more information about title insurance, such as what makes title insurance unique, consumer protection, Federal and state regulation of the title industry.
