What does a title insurance underwriter do?

One of the most important investments a person makes over the course of their life is the purchase of a home. When you have a mortgage on your home, you will have to get title insurance that works to protect you in case a legal matter. In the unfortunate event that someone asserts a claim against your home, you will be protected by this insurance policy.

The title insurance underwriter will investigate documents to make sure there are no possible problems that would have a negative impact on the homeowner’s rights. For example, there may be situations where someone else is claiming to be the real owner of the home even though this is not true, forged documentation regarding the ownership of the home, and more. These issues can be devastating to a homeowner and we believe it is important that your ownership is protected. Title insurance will cover the cost of any legal fees you need to find justice during this frustrating time.
