How Title Insurance Works for YOUR Protection
An Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance protects your investment for as long as you or your heirs have an interest in the property. Additionally, Landmark Abstract and it’s underwriters will, at their own expense, defend the title and will pay losses within the coverage of the policy if they occur. Unlike other insurance models, title insurance is a one-time premium paid at the closing of your transaction.
