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.

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
