If your Buyer isobtaining a Mortgage , YOU HAVE NO OPTION ! it's a must !
Michael J. Perry
Very important. Always recommend title insurance.
In my opinion, essentential.
It's sort of like the emergency exit on an airliner. You'll probably never need it, but if you do, you really will need it.
If you are buying a home, It's extremely important. Tell me how important it is when you find out there is a $20,000 lein on the house you bought last year and you didn't have title insurance.
I always recommend title insurance and tell buyers I will not buy a piece of proeprty without it.
It is required in the state of Utah. . . . . .
If a mortgage is involved it is mandatory. If a cash transaction the buyer should obtain to preserve the chain and avoid future problems!
Pretty important when something from the past becomes an issue.
Way up there on my scale.
Wouldn't close any transaction without it.
It is so important you will not get a loan without it.
It has many benefits.
Minnette Olsen Very important should an issue surface with the title abstract. Also recommend the buyer also purchase owner's title insurance. Those mechanics liens or judgements can sneak up on you.
Better to have than to not especially when a claim is made
I represented a seller who had purchased his home as a bank foreclosure. The previous title co missed a 50K write off...oops. They had to insure over it.
Very important need it for searches of judgment's and liens etc..
Very, and I wouldn't recommend closing without it.
My neighbor is losing a 3 acre parcel of land that he "bought" some years ago. He has no Title Insurance; there is nothing he can do to stop it.
not a question of importance. If the title is fraudulent it will reimburse for the error. It is MANDATORY.
I do wish there was data regarding the number of polices issued and the number and amount of claims. My perception is there are very, very, very few claims filed, making title insurance a cash cow.
Yet, to cover my own exposure, I would never advise a buyer to skip title insurance.
Even knowing how astronomical the odds are, title insurance is sold and folks keep buying Power Ball tickets.
Lenders require it so it must be important.
