WHAT IS TITLE INSURANCE?
Title insurance protects your home from any past claims, liens or other problems that existed before you purchased the property. The agent you hire to handle your title insurance will conduct historical research on the land or real estate you want to purchase. If the search performed results in any problems with the real estate, the agent assists in fixing the problem before closing. If, after closing, a problem or issue with the property was missed, then the title insurance policy takes care of the issue.
DO I HAVE TO GET TITLE INSURANCE?
If you are using a mortgage to buy your home or other real estate, then title insurance is mandatory. You are purchasing a policy for yourself and for the lender and it is required by your lender. If you are paying cash, then the title insurance is optional. However, if you are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for real estate, the cost to insure that your purchase is protceted is minimal.
HOW MUCH IS TITLE INSURANCE?
The price of title insurance is based on the purchase price of the property. For the first $100,000.00, the Florida title insurance rates are $5.75 per $1,000.00. For example, if the home purchase price is $100,000.00, then the title insurance rate is $575.00 ($5.75 x 100). For a purchase price over $100,000, then the Florida title insurance rates are $5.75 per $1,000.00 for the first $100,000.00, and $5.00 per $1,000 beyond up to $1 Million. If the home purchase price is $200,000.00, then the title insurance rate is $1,075.00 (($5.75 x 100) + ($5.00 x 100)).
