Receipt of Title Insurance Order
By providing complete and accurate information, including a full legal description, your order can be processed more quickly.

Examination of Title and Issuance of the Title Commitment
An examination of the land records is performed to verify ownership of the property and to set out the required documents and information to facilitate the transaction.

Closing
A closing is normally scheduled by the realtor or lender after the title commitment is completed. All necessary documents are prepared for the buyers and sellers to finalize the transaction.

Issuance of Title Insurance Policy
Once all the requirements on the title commitment have been fulfilled, the Title Insurance Policy is issued.

The lender's policy protects the lender, but not the owner, against title loss, up to the loan amount.

The owner's policy covers the owner's interest for the appraisal amount. The policy remains in force for as long as the insured party maintains ownership.
