Title insurance protects against claims from defects. Defects are things such as another person claiming an ownership interest, improperly recorded documents, fraud, forgery, liens, encroachments, easements and other items that are specified in the actual policy.
“A lot of things can happen to cause a real estate closing to fall through. But, I never worry that the closing attorney will be the cause of any problem when Shannon Elliott is handling the transaction. She and her staff are personable and easy to communicate with. When problems arise, they find ways to overcome them. I highly recommend them.”
