In real estate, home buyers are often confused with title insurance. If you take out a mortgage to purchase a home, the lender will require you to provide title insurance. That policy will only protect the lender in the event there is a claim on the property. Buyers should also take out the buyer’s insurance to protect themselves against any defaults on the title. Just because the sellers of the property have owned the land for a long time is no guarantee that the property does not have claim against it. My advice to buyers is to take out the buyers’ title insurance.
