WHAT IS TITLE INSURANCE?
Unfortunately, even the most thorough review of public records may not disclose the rights of someone else to your property. Title insurance protects you from an endless array of possibilities such as defective deeds, homestead rights, easements, and encroachments.
WHAT IS THE COST OF TITLE INSURANCE?
A one time insurance premium is based on the sales price of the home according to rates promulgated in the Florida Administrative Code. Under Florida law, you are entitled to a significant discount on your premium if a prior policy was issued within 3 years of closing.
WHAT IS THE COST OF CLOSING SERVICES?
