What is Title Insurance?
Title insurance is insurance against loss or damage resulting from defects or failure of title to a particular parcel of real property.
How does title insurance protect me?
Title Insurance Companies, following a claim, will defend your title at the expense of the Title Insurance Company and will bear the cost to settle the claim, if proven valid, thus protecting your ownership and possession of your property. This coverage accrues to your heirs as well.

How is the rate for Title Insurance determined in Pennsylvania?
Title Insurance Rates in Pennsylvania are regulated by the State Insurance Department. In many other States, Insurance services are provided a la carte, depending on the services provided. Pennsylvania uses what is known as an All Inclusive Rate, and provides, within a single rate, the costs to perform a title search, conduct a closing, and issue the Title Insurance Policies. Excluded from this rate are incidental fees such as transfer taxes, notary fees, recording fees, courier fees, endorsements, etc.
