Title Insurance

One of the largest investments you will ever make is the purchase of property. With Hendrich Title Company as your closing agent, you have solid protection with Fidelity National Title Insurance for property owners. Title insurance is protection against loss arising from problems connected to the title to your property. While other insurance protects you from future events, title insurance protects against what happened in the past.

Before you purchase a property, it has gone through many owners. You can think of all past owners as links in a chain – the chain of title. A weak link could cause trouble. For example, twenty years ago an owner died and left the property to his heirs. One of the heirs could not be found, but has now surfaced to claim the property. Title insurance covers the insured party for any claims and legal fees that could arise out of such a situation. Unlike other forms of insurance, there are no annual payments to keep an owner's title insurance policy in force. The original premium, paid at closing, is your only cost as long as you or your heirs own the property.
