Reliable Title Insurance and Real Estate Solutions

What is Title Insurance?

Title insurance is a form of indemnity insurance that protects lenders and homebuyers from financial loss sustained from defects in a title to a property.

 

Purchasing real estate and making loans secured by real estate comes with risk. Much of that risk has to do with the title to the real estate. The title may contain, liens, encumbrances or other matters that can jeopardize the purchaser’s and/or lender’s interest in the property. 

In Pennsylvania, title insurance rates are regulated by the insurance department.  The title insurance premium is considered “All-Inclusive” which is a bundled rate that includes the title search, title examination, closing/settlement, recording and issuance of the title insurance policy (all for a one time premium). 

We are here to help you every step of the way.  We work closely with buyers and sellers, attorneys, realtors, bankers, and investors to make your transaction a pleasant and affordable experience.
