Title insurance is usually required by the lender to protect the lender against loss resulting from claims by others against your new home. In some states, attorneys offer title insurance as part of their services in examining title and providing a title opinion. The attorney's fee may include the title insurance premium. In other states, a title insurance company or title agent directly provides the title insurance. A Lender's Title Insurance policy is usually required when you are refinancing. If you have an Owner's Title policy already (you probably received it with your recorded deed) and can provide the title agent with a copy of it, you can very often get a reissue credit that will greatly reduce the amount of money this lenders title insurance policy will cost you. To save money on title insurance, compare rates among various title insurance companies. Ask what services and limitations on coverage are provided under each policy. In many states, title insurance premium rates are established by the state and may not be negotiable. Even if the premium rates are not negotiable, many of the title-related fees can vary from company to company and should be compared as well.
