This Is the Foundation of Our Business at Gold Star Title & Escrow

If you’re like most people, there’s a pretty good chance you know very little about the title and escrow process, which is an important part of every real estate sale. If you’ve ever bought a house, you probably spent more time talking to your Realtor or your mortgage broker than your title agent.

What you are probably most familiar with when people talk about “insurance” as it applies to your home, is your hazard or homeowner’s insurance policy. Hazard or homeowner’s insurance is casualty based insurance. That is to say, it protects you from a FUTURE event or casualty to the home such as hail damage in a storm. It protects you from things that cannot be predicted.

Title insurance is an insurance policy as well but it is indemnity based insurance. Indemnity based insurance is protection from PAST events which are revealed in the historical record of the property.

Another big difference between hazard insurance and title insurance is how you pay for it. Hazard insurance is for the life of your loan and must be renewed every year until your loan is paid off. Title insurance is a onetime fee paid at closing and protects you as the owner for the life of your ownership.

What’s an example of a past event that would be covered?

Well, let’s say you’ve owned a house for five years and you’re ready to sell. Unfortunately, the person you bought the house from five years ago had sold it to you with a lien on the house. They had put a new roof on the house and it took a while to pay it off so the roofing company issued a lien. And even though the owners had paid off the debt years before they sold the house to you, they never officially removed the lien and it wasn’t caught when you bought the house.

Now, a new title company finds the lien and, by law, it has to be removed before the sale can go forward. Sounds simple, right? But what if the roofer has gone out of business or is under new ownership? What if no one can find a record of the previous owner paying off the balance on the roof? Eventually, it can be resolved, but it takes a lot more time and your seller may get impatient and back out, leaving you continuing to pay the mortgage. These are the kinds of problems that can be prevented when the title process is handled professionally and thoroughly.

The largest financial transaction of your life

If you’re like most Americans, the largest transaction you’ll be involved with throughout your entire life, in terms of dollar amount, will involve real estate. Maybe it’s a house you’ll live in, potentially for many years, and possibly raise your family in. Or, you may be selling a home because your family has grown too big for your current house, or you can afford a nicer home in a better neighborhood. If you’re an investor, you may want to purchase a home you can renovate and flip for a profit, or have it generate passive rental income. You might also be interested in undeveloped land or commercial properties you can invest in to diversify your retirement portfolio. These can be complicated transactions with a lot of moving parts where hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars are involved.
