Title Insurance

Gary I. Handin, PA.. offers comprehensive title insurance for homeowners and property investors. While real estate attorneys will spend hours and hours conducting title searches and risk evaluations, it is near impossible to ensure that every possible hidden title hazard is uncovered. Unfortunately, even after closing, issues with title can arise. Documents which have been forged or improperly executed, existing defects in titles, outstanding liens, and other transaction errors could all impact your security of title. We provide both lender protection and owner’s coverage. Lender or mortgagee protection is a form of title insurance which will protect you if a claim is made against your property, securing your defense or reimbursing you if the claim is proven valid. Owner’s coverage is a form of insurance which covers the ownership of the property in favor of the current owner, for as long as they own the property. At Gary I. Handin, PA., all our title insurance is underwritten by Old Republice Title Insurance Company through Attorney’s Title Insurance Fund, a globally established title insurance company. This means you get the best possible coverage, giving you peace of mind with every real estate transaction you undertake.
