Yes. You have to buy a lender's title policy for the new lender. Your owner's title policy is good for as long you own the home. If you have an owner's policy, you can very often get a "reissue credit" on any future lenders title policies that you may be required to buy when you refinance.

The Mortgage Policy is only good for the life of the loan. If the current loan is paid off, the policy is no longer needed on the CURRENT loan being paid off.

However, the new lender will require a Mortgage Policy on the new loan.

The ONLY time you may not be required to get new title insurance would be if the current mortgage loan was re-written by the lender, changing terms, interest rates but not the loan amount.

Don't confuse this with a Streamline loan offered by your current lender offering a new interest rate on a new loan, but with low cost closing fees.

Does the seller pay fortitle insurance policy

You need title insurance to protect your title, but the person who SOLD you the warranty deed should pay for the insurance and provide proof that he or she has obtained title insurance that will pay the costs they will incur if the title is defective.Otherwise, you're stuck with a worthless warranty deed and may be left trying to sue the seller who has no money to pay for anything, let alone restitution or other damages.

Yes, virtually all lenders' underwriting requirements call for lender's title insurance for a refinance.

Yes that is what title insurance is for. However, there is a very good chance that the title insurance company will sue the attorney who was supposed to do the title search in the first place as they obviously didn't do their job.

If your name is on the title, you can get the car and then pay the insurance. If your name is not on the title, you can pay the insurance to keep it from getting repossessed. If your name is not on the loan, quit paying and let her worry about it.

Generally speaking, if the owner purchased title insurance the lien should be paid by the title insurance company. If not and the lien was recorded and missed in the course of the title examination the attorney who certified the title to the buyer should be contacted. Her malpractice insurance should pay the lien.

Title insurance is a specialized type of insurance that is not generally sold by insurance agents. It is usually provided by an attorney and underwritten by a title insurance company who specializes in this type of insurance. The title insurance company relies on statements and work done by the attorney when he does the title search and he has some liability for his work. You can't just decide that you want a title insurance policy anytime. It is usually done when you purchase a piece of property. I suppose that if you wanted to pay for a new title search you may be able to buy a policy at a time other than at closing.

Yes, there are fees to be paid, such as credit reports, appraisals, processing, taxes and insurance.

Most places have title insurance companies that would do a title search for you for a fee, but you can go down to your local property record office (like a Register of Deeds or County Clerk) and search yourself for free. If you go the title insurance route, the company will guarantee the accuracy of their findings for you so you can rely on them, but again, you have to pay.

It depends on why you don't have the title. If you don't have it because it is financed then yes. The insurance company will do the work for you of getting the title released from the bank. If you don't have it because you don't own the vehicle then no the company will not pay you. Legally they cannot pay you for a vehicle that you don't own just like you cannot insurance a vehicle you don't own. They also cannot pay the true owner because that person does not have a legal contract of insurance with the company. No one gets paid.

As long as you have the title that he signed off of it and you signed on and you have insurance on the vehicle it will be covered.

Yes, some states require transfer taxes when refinancing but not all.

i pay out my car but i still need to change the title ,i have insurance but not a license can i still transfer the title in my name?

Mortgage refinancing is a good way to lower your mortgage. Refinancing brings your payments down by finding a better loan. Refinancing allows you to have lower monthly payments which will allow you to pay off your loan faster.

cannot imagine any situation where an insurance company would pay the entire amount without this title.......file for lost title with your state..

Insurance is meant to get you back relatively close to where you were before the accident occurs. The states view of your title should have no bearing.

It depends if they pay for the expenses such as insurance, gas, repairs etc.

Totaled vehicles which have been rebuilt generally have a "salvaged vehicle" title, or whatever it's called in your state. Vehicles with a salvaged vehicle title are by definition, not as valuable as the same vehicle with a clean title. If the vehicle is subsequently in another collision, the insurance company will not pay as much since the loss was not as great. Insurance companies only need to pay you for the actual value of the vehicle.

An insurance deductible is a set amount of money that the insured is required to pay before the insurance company starts to pay. For instance, if your deductible for the year is $100.00, and your first insurance bill is $150.00 , they will only pay $50 and you will have to pay $100 (deductible). Every insurance bill after that will be paid for by the insurance company until the end of the year and then the cycle starts again. The deductible is your responsibility.

no, but then you cannot drive the car if she cancels the insurance. you would drive w/o insurance, would you? that would be stupid.
