Title insurance protects parties to property transactions by standing behind the seller’s title to the property being conveyed, checking for any defects or issues on the title, such as liens or competing claims, and specifying all zoning restrictions or easements on the property’s permissible use.
Florida law on title insurance sets the same costs for all agents, no matter whether the policy comes from an agent who is a skilled central Florida real estate lawyer, or from an insurance company representative who may handle dozens of different types of insurance lines.
For that reason, it costs the buyer no more to have an expert local lawyer act as title insurance agent during the closing on a residential or commercial property. As your attorney, a real estate lawyer who acts as title insurance agent during a real estate closing has a special financial responsibility to see your interests are protected.
