Title Insurance Claim Attorneys in Putnam County

Experienced Title insurance claim lawyers Serving Palatka, florida

Unlike most other types of insurance, title insurance affords coverage for losses related to the condition of the policyholder’s ownership (title) and not against risks for future occurrences. Title insurance protects real estate owners against losses that result from adverse claims to their title due to conditions that would render record title “unmarketable.” Under Florida law, marketable record title is free and clear of all estates, interests, claims, or charges.

What are the Title Insurance Laws in Florida?

Florida title insurance companies have a duty to conduct a reasonable title search before they issue a title insurance policy. This duty includes searching the chain of title record, consulting an expert about their findings, and guaranteeing the accuracy of the search and the quality of record title.

Title insurance companies are contractually obligated to cover losses resulting from situations such as:

  • Improper deed recording
  • Forgery and impersonation
  • Undisclosed mortgages or liens
  • Undisclosed easements
  • Undisclosed use restrictions
  • Invalid transfers due to lack of capacity or legal authority
  • Invalid deeds due to the absence of a necessary party (i.e., co-owner, spouse, business partner)

In Florida, the seller usually pays for title insurance in most counties. However, in some counties, the buyer typically pays, including Miami-Dade, Broward, Sarasota, and Collier County, FL.

Title insurance companies also provide closing services, which includes preparing documents for concluding a transaction such as:
