The Importance of Protecting Ownership of Your Property

 The Importance of Protecting Ownership of Your Property

Buying a property is one of the biggest goals and greatest accomplishments in life. Not only is it a fantastic way to showcase your hard work over the years, but it also represents a huge gain in your financial assets. However, buying a property does not necessarily mean owning the property; the process of getting the ownership rights to a property is much longer and more complicated than you may think. 

Once you buy a property, you will definitely want to go through the process of gaining Property Rights to protect your home and avoid costly professional and legal fees. From there, you’ll want to purchase title insurance, which will legally and financially protect you from losing your ownership rights. But having title insurance does so much more than protect ownership. Here are some of the other benefits and protections you have when you have title insurance: 

  • Protection of Ownership for Heirs

  • Protection of the Lender (if you have a mortgage)

  • Financial Protection from Legal Costs and Other Fees Associated with Defending Ownership

  • Forged or Invalid Documents Such As Deeds, Mortgages, Satisfactions, and Releases

    • Includes deeds signed by mistake, deeds written by mentally imcompetant person, and deed by falsified power of attorney, improperly recorded deeds (missing pages, wrongly recorded county or address, etc.)

  • Misinterpretation of Wills, Deeds, and Other Instruments

  • Forged Notarization 

  • Inaccurate or Inadequate Legal Descriptions

  • Undisclosed Records

    • Includes federal/state tax liens, spousal and child support liens, prior mortgages, etc.
