When you buy a home, you are required to get title insurance for the lender who is providing your mortgage. You do have the option to get title insurance for yourself and we highly recommend you do so to protect what is likely your largest investment.

The horror stories are painful to hear about when people decline owner’s title insurance and end up losing their homes because of a rare issue that arises with the title of their home.

Many of our clients are confused by why you need title insurance and so we put together a list that will give you an overview of why it’s a good investment:

  • Protects your largest investment
  • Reduces your risk
  • You can’t beat the value
  • Covers your heirs
  • Nothing compares
  • 8 in 10 homebuyers agree
  • Peace of mind

Click here to see a quick one pager that further explains each point and if you have questions, email us directly. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Title Tip of the Week 

If a resident of Virginia dies without a will (intestate), then according to Virginia Code § 64.2-200, the real estate passes directly to the heirs at law. The person who qualifies as Administrator of the estate does not have title to the real estate or the power to sell it.

The sale of the real estate can only be accomplished in two manners:

  • Petition the court for power of sale
  • By agreement of all the heirs

Therefore, in the case of an intestate estate, if possible, it’s often best to have all the heirs sign the listing agreement and contract, then convey the property at Settlement. This avoids the necessity of filing a Petition with the Court for Power of Sale.

Title Tip of the Week

Cases of wire fraud are becoming more prevalent in the DMV. Did you know that Virginia ranks 6th in the country for this type of real estate cybercrime?

In order to prevent wire fraud from occurring, always call your title company to verify wire instructions before initiating a wire.

In addition to this, never call the number that is listed in an email. Always make sure to use the number listed on the title companies website to ensure you are wiring the funds to the correct place.
