Title Insurance Expert Witnesses
Title insurance protects a homeowner or mortgage lender from damage or loss from liens or errors in the title. It is required by most states to close a mortgage and is usually included in the buyer’s mortgage amount. The lender’s title insurance policy covers them up to the amount of the mortgage and lasts until the mortgage is fully paid. The homeowner’s policy lasts until the property is sold. Unlike other types of insurance, which protects against future problems, title insurance protects against claims for past events.
