Title Insurance & Title Insurance Services
Your home is probably the largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, and you must do everything you can to protect that investment. Title insurance is a form of insurance that protects you against financial loss from defective titles and from any legal issues with mortgage liens. Simply put, title insurance protects your financial interest in property against loss due to problems with the title or the lien. If you need a title insurance services, you’ve come to the right place.
Southern Title, Inc., a locally owned and operated New Orleans real estate transfer company, sells title insurance to protect your title and ensure it’s free of any defects. Only after thoroughly researching (abstracting) the property’s history, we will issue a title insurance policy if everything is in order. A property abstract is the history of the title for a certain piece of property. A defect in the title’s abstract will cause problems.
A defect in the title is any claim or restriction that may make the title invalid. A title insurance policy will protect you against title defects such as human errors, fraud, improperly prepared deeds, defective wills and defective liens. Our full-time Abstracting Department is in-house and covers the entire New Orleans area and also maintains links to parish courthouses for fast service to our clients.
Title insurance services are very, very important because a title is a physical proof that you own property, and title insurance prevents others from making a claim to your property.
