About Property Searches

The purpose of the search is to verify the seller’s right to transfer property ownership and to discover any defects or encumbrances on the title. A title search should show all title defects and encumbrances as well as judgments, liens and other restrictions (i.e., unpaid taxes, unsatisfied mortgages, judgments against the seller, land-use restrictions, etc.).

About Title Insurance…

A Title Insurance Policy insures that as the new owner, your title for the property is free and clear of any possible encumbrances, and that you have clear title from the seller. A title insurance policy insures that you will stand protected from loss or damage as a result of any title defects. Some possible encumbrances include protection from forged documents, mistakes in public records, fraud and incorrect property descriptions. Wells County Land Title will provide a thorough search of the public records to reveal possible liens, claims or encumbrances against the property.

There are two primary types of title insurance policies.

  1. The Owner’s Policy:

The Owner’s Policy is issued to the new owner guaranteeing that the title to the property they are purchasing is delivered to them without any restrictions or encumbrances.

  1. The Lender’s Policy

The Lender’s Policy is issued to the lender when there is a mortgage lien to be issued on the      property. It guarantees that the title to the property for which they are lending funds is free and clear of any encumbrances.

  1. Refinancing

Refinancing is the process of obtaining new lender financing on a property. There are several   reasons to Refinance. The most common is when the initial financing was at a much higher interest rate thus refinancing at a lower interest rate would reduce the monthly payments.
