Title Insurance

Quite often, purchasers don't know the importance of Title Insurance.

Here are some risks that Title insurance covers:

- Unpaid strata assessments
- Work orders and/or zoning setbacks that are non-compliance
- Liens, encumbrances, or defects in the title to a property
- Property Tax Arrears
- Defects that would have been revealed by an accurate, up-to-date survey
- Governmental Authority forcing you to remove or remedy your existing structures or any part of them, other than a boundary wall or fence, because any portion of your existing structures was built without obtaining a required building permit
- Another party claiming an interest in the property
- Impersonation, forgery, fraud, duress, incompetence, incapacity
- Title is unmarketable, which allows another person to refuse to perform a contract to purchase, to lease, or to make a mortgage loan

When a property is purchased, Title insurance can be purchased for a one-time fee. Depending on the premium you pay, it can protect you and your lender, or your lender only. A title insurance company issues the policy, and the policy remains in effect for as long as you own the property.

Note that a new policy may be required if you change mortgage lenders. To obtain a quote on Title Insurance in BC, call 1-866-570-2206 or visit https://www.fct.ca/contact/ for a list of locations in all of Canada.
