Title Insurance in St Petersburg

An owner's title insurance policy protects the property owner against financial loss due to title defects, liens, or other issues that may arise with the title to the property.

Some common risks covered by an owner's policy include:

  1. Forged documents: If someone forges a document related to your property's title, an owner's policy can help protect you against financial loss.
  2. Undiscovered encumbrances: This includes issues like outstanding liens, easements, or other restrictions that could affect your ability to use or sell the property.
  3. Errors in public records: If there are mistakes in the public records related to your property, an owner's policy can help cover the costs of resolving these issues.
  4. Illegal deeds: If a previous owner of the property did not have the legal right to sell it, an owner's policy can protect you against financial loss.
  5. Title defects: This can include issues like improperly recorded documents, undisclosed heirs claiming ownership, or other problems with the chain of title.

Overall, an owner's title insurance policy provides peace of mind by protecting you against financial loss related to these and other title-related issues.
