Inheritance Issues – Is Title Insurance Still Relevant?

You’ve heard it said ‘all in the family,’ but when it comes to real estate, it’s best to dot your ‘i’s and cross your ‘t’s.’

Even if a piece of land has been in the family for generations, the fact remains that title disputes can still arise, and if you don’t have all of your ducks in a row, things can get complicated.

Here’s what you need to know – prior to March of 2001, title insurance forms were created in a way that allowed for inherited properties to be transferred in an inheritance transaction. If you have questions – be sure to ask your trusted Title Insurance agent just what kind of coverage exists for your claim.

While most companies currently utilize forms that ensure the transference of Title protection along with inherited properties, it’s always in your best interest to ensure that you (and your new property) have sufficient title insurance coverage.
