Title Insurance & Disputes

Title insurance indemnifies a property owner from financial loss when a defect in the title to the property is identified after closing. Multiple parties are involved in closing New Jersey real estate transactions creating the possibility for incorrect information to be recorded and defects not identified. Common title defects include encumbrances, liens, and adverse claims against the property.
