  Title Insurance  
  Title insurance insures against loss sustained by the insured if the title is, in actuality, other than as insured. The beneficiaries of title insurance policies generally are real estate buyers and mortgage lenders. A title insurance policy protects the named insured against title defects, liens and encumbrances existing as of the date of the policy and not excepted from coverage. For a one-time premium, the policy remains in effect until the property is sold or refinanced.  
     
  Escrow Services  
 

Escrow is a process that requires a neutral third party to perform the following functions to close a real estate transaction:

  • Receives a completed and fully executed purchase and sales agreement and/or lender's instructions
  • Orders and delivers a commitment for title insurance to the parties of the transaction
  • Orders all necessary payoff statements and demands to clear the title
  • Prepares all necessary documents to transfer title
  • Prepares the estimated and final closing statements
  • Obtains all necessary signatures, funds and documents to close the transaction
  • Records and delivers all necessary documents and disburses the funds according to the parties' and/or lender's instruction
