9 Fun Facts About Title Insurance

Title insurance is a crucial part of buying real estate, whether a home, business, or commercial or residential plot of land. Without title insurance, your right to use and occupy your new property may be hindered by rights and claims asserted by others - potentially even years after the closing date. Despite its incredible importance, title insurance is largely misunderstood (if it's understood at all) in the general community. Arrowhead Title, Inc. is here to educate you on our unique industry by filling you in on these fun facts about title insurance.

Arrowhead Title Is Here For Your Title Needs At The Lake

When you are buying real estate at the Lake of the Ozarks, finding a reliable title company is essential. Though owner's title policies are not required (and lender's title policies are only necessary if you are obtaining a mortgage loan), we strongly encourage you to consider purchasing an owner's title policy as well. The lender's policy will not protect you, the buyer, in the event that someone stakes a claim on your land - the buyer's policy is the only one that will offer the protection you need. Since title insurance is purchased for a one-time premium, it is one of the most affordable forms of insurance available on the market today.
