Title insurance: Prevent real estate losses in South Carolina

Imagine this situation. You've just bought a home, finished signing onto insurance and you've entered and taken possession of your property. Suddenly, you get a phone call or visit from someone who claims they own the property you've just purchased.

What do you do now? You could be involved in a long, drawn-out legal battle, but there are ways to avoid this completely. Title insurance is a type of insurance you can purchase to avoid this problem. This insurance is signed and purchased at the time of your real-estate closing, so it's always there after you agree to take over the title.

When a party makes a claim and you have this insurance, you should be protected against losing out on the purchase you've made. For instance, if the claim takes priority over your mortgage and interest and is in the other party's favor, your insurance would at least be able to cover you against financial losses. Of course, if you work with the right people, you may be able to get the other party to agree to a settlement or other arrangement, so you can stay in your home.

If you've moved into a home in South Carolina and are faced with losing it due to a title dispute, it's important to get the right legal help. Your interests in staying in your home are every bit as important as someone else's claim to the real estate you've purchased.
