Why does your real estate need to be insured by title insurance?

Many different parties may have "rights" to your property such as mortgage and leasehold rights, liens due for unpaid taxes and lien claims to those to whom the owner owes money, just to name a few. Some of these claims actually attach to the property's title.

When you buy a home, building, or vacant land, your attorney will perform a complete investigation (the "title search") on every aspect of the property looking for such risks.

Even after the search is completed, you will need protection in the event a hidden risk has been missed in the public records or someone makes a claim on the title to your property. Title insurance protects you against risks and insures you against loss.

How do you get title insurance?

North Carolina is an "attorney state" which means that title insurance is ordered by your closing attorney through the title company. Title insurance is a one-time fee that will appear on your closing statement.

HPW Market Title will gladly work with any attorney in the state of North Carolina that is approved by our underwriter, Chicago Title. However, for your convenience, we do provide a list of attorneys who are competent attorneys that focus primarily on real estate law.
