What if the lending institution already has title insurance, why would I also be required to purchase my own title insurance policy? Shouldn’t both parties the purchaser and the lender be covered under the same policy?
The MTP (mortgage title policy) will insure that the lender and the lien that they hold is a valid lien against the property in question.
An OTP (owner’s title policy) will insure the new purchaser that he or she owns the property subject to listed exceptions.
The mortgagee’s policy defends and safeguards the lender’s interest just so as long as the loan is outstanding and only for the amount of the balance of said loan at any given moment in time. The actual owner’s policy will protect you up to the face amount of said policy all during your ownership and even after you have sold the real estate in question. In some real estate transactions, the property can be warranted to a subsequent buyer, in this case each one of the title insurance policies executes different functions. With that being said, it is impossible for one title insurance policy to cover both the lender and purchaser.
How can having title insurance protect you against title defects and hidden risk?
When done properly and effectively title insurance will safeguard you from lawsuits that attack your title. Generally the title insurance will rectify the title problem and pay the insured’s losses all the way up to the face amount of the title insurance policy. The title insurance policy will also provide protection after you have sold the property from title defects that occurred before your ownership that might have or could cause the purchaser a loss if the title was warranted by you.
How long will my home or property be covered by these types of title insurance policies?
The OTP or owner’s title policy will insure you and your family heirs as long as they remain in ownership or have liabilities by virtue of warranties to title insurance policy given by you to a purchaser. The MPT or mortgagee title policy protects the lender until the loan is fully paid off.
