A loan closing is the last step to securing a mortgage for your new property. This is when every party involved in the loan transaction signs all the legal documents and distributes funds.
Because there are so many parties involved, there is no such thing as a “standard” closing, so knowing what you’ll need ahead of time can be difficult. Cross Timbers Title can help navigate the loan closing to make sure that your mortgage is squared away.
If you are buying or selling a property, there’s always a chance that something could go wrong that could limit your ability to use the property. Outstanding mortgagees, judgements, liens, unknown heirs, and forgeries can all hamper your ability to purchase the property in question.
Title insurance is a kind of indemnity insurance that protects both lenders and homebuyers from financial loss that might be sustained by any of the above mentioned title defects. Protect yourself financially before you buy.
Not necessarily. There are two types of title insurance. A lender’s policy ensures that your lender has a valid lien on the property. Most lenders require this type of insurance and will typically require the borrower to pay for it.
On the other hand, an owner's policy protects your interest in the property. Title troubles, such as improper estate proceedings or pending legal action, could put your equity at serious risk. If a valid claim is filed, in addition to covering the financial loss up to the face value of the policy, your owner’s title policy will pay for the cost of legal advice.
Most definitely! Title insurance is a means of protecting yourself from financial loss in the event that problems develop regarding the rights of ownership to your property. There may be hidden title defects that even the most careful title search will not reveal.
In addition to protection from financial loss, title insurance pays the cost of defending you against any covered claim.
