Title Insurance provides protection to an owner and/or lender against claims arising over ownership of property due to unknown title defects and from certain matters which may exist but not be knowable at the time of the recording of the insured document. Title insurance guarantees that a presumed owner of property is in fact the owner with the right to sell, mortgage or otherwise act to affect his or her property.
