Title Services

Owner’s Policy

 An Owner’s title insurance policy protects the people or party named as the insured on the owner’s policy from loss or damage sustained or incurred by the existence of defects, liens and encumbrances except those specifically excepted out in the policy’s coverage.

Lender’s (Loan)  Policy

 A lender’s title insurance policy (also called a loan policy) insured the lender’s lien interest in the property.  It provides similar coverage as the owner’s policy but the only party covered by the insurance is the lender.

Please note that a loan policy does not provide coverage or protection from claims to the borrower.
