Cost. Service. Accountability. These are the holy trinity of reasons why you should care who issues your Title Insurance Policy.
Normally local title companies will charge you less.
A local title company is quickly available answer your questions when challenges or trials arise. You do not have to deal with complicated online forums or frustrating dialing services, both of which distance you from a real and dedicated professional.
Local title company associates will see you at a church or school function, while shopping at Wal-Mart, or at the fair downtown. When we review your closing documents at your side, we make sure you understand them. We cannot simply run away after closing a deal, while representatives of larger corporations may shake hands and never think to see you again.
In our close-knit community, who we do business with matters, especially when it comes to cost, service, and accountability.
We are at your service to answer any real estate-related questions you may have. Please call on us at (904) 797-9600, and search our online public information below.
Title Insurance is a policy that protects you from financial loss due to a challenge against your real estate ownership.
When was the last time you had to hire an attorney to defend your rights? It’s dang expensive. Think of that owner’s Title Insurance policy as prepaid attorney’s fees. Whether or not someone has the right to challenge your ownership (even after you’ve sold), you still have to prove it in a court of law and that can be cost prohibitive. Title Insurance is an inexpensive way to protect your now and your future.
Title Insurance has exceptions and exclusions. Title Endorsements close the gap. Title Insurance policy does not cover covenants and restrictions violations, mineral issues, easements, abusive association, challenges against condominium declarations, and the list goes on…. For a nominal cost, Title Endorsements absorb all of those expenses.
Driver’s license, and if you’re the buyer: a cashier’s check. Of course there are always exceptions to this, but for the most part, that’s it. Sometimes the buyer has to bring a second form of photo ID if the lender requires it.
Title Insurance fees are regulated by the State of Florida. The base rate is $5.75 per thousand up to $100,000, and $5.00 per thousand thereafter up to $1 million. Discounts are available for some transactions. Please call Land Title at (904) 797-9600 for specifics.
