Homeowner’s insurance typically provides protection for the dwelling and its contents. For instance, if a fire destroys your home, you can rebuild and buy new possessions. However, if the title to the land fails, you could lose the right to inhabit your home as well as the land it occupies.

There are two main types of title insurance policies: a lender’s policy and an owner’s policy. A lender’s policy is typically required for a mortgage, it financially covers the amount of the loan and provides protection to the lender. An owner’s policy protects the landowner against a title loss, which ensures the value of the property. With owner’s title insurance, if a claim is made against the title, the underwriter must pay any and all costs associated with defense against the challenge. If unsuccessful in that defense, the underwriter reimburses the landowner for any reduction in the value of the land.
