What is title insurance for?

10 posts in this topic

After reading a post, it made me wonder what title insurance is and what it's good for. Anyone have an answer? Thanks

They collect money from you, so good for them... wink

Hopefully Jackpine Rob can answer for us, as he knows his stuff and can answer in regular language. He explained to me at our closing, but I can never remember it correctly.

From what I recall, they do their best to make sure title is "clear" but I am pretty sure they don't actually "warranty" it, possibly I am wrong. It is silly that we have to do this when refinancing especially, when the property hasn't changed hands.

Box is on it....Title insurance protects buyer/owner and the lender in the event that something shows up on title that the title company didn't find when doing a title search/title exam.

The reason I ask is the land I bought near Grand Marais needs to be resurveyed. I guess when it was done a hundred years ago it was inaccurate. Now the landowners in the section being surveyed are required to pay for it. Just wondering if the title insurance would cover this cost or is it just one of those things that I need to pay for.

From what i understand the insurance should cover it. Because you buy the ins for the reason if anything got over looked during the deed search ins kicks in. To Cover the cost if something was overlooked or someone once had a lien on the place that never got settled up. I think that is how it was worded to me if i understood correctly but its been a few months since then.

I bet the ins will not cover a true survey. Reason why, the insurance is more a guesstimate, IMHO. I got the title companies drawing when I did my most recent, and it was just a drawing, not a true survey, and they usually don't even give you that.

Ask specific questions though, as I am often wrong wink

Title insurance primarily protects you in the event there is past a lien or judgment against the property.

I can also tell you this, you really need it when you need it. When we purchased our first home of course we had title insurance. Well, 5 yrs later we go to sell and the RE agent goes, wheres the abstract? We were like, whats an abstract? We didnt have it, the bank never had it, the RE agent had never seen it, the lawyer you have to use didnt have it. The title insurace company end up buying another one, $750. Then 3 yrs later the lawyer calls me and tells me to come get my abtract because he was cleaning out his office when he was retiring and found the thing. I gave it to the RE agent. When I came in the door, the first thing out of his secretarys mouth was the name of the lawyer. I dont know whatever happened but I bet someone wasnt happy.

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
