Why do I need to pay for Title Insurance when Selling my Home?

Thu, Mar 10th 2022 8:46 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

Why do I need to pay for title insurance? Many believe if you pay for a title search, the title insurance is not really necessary. If everything works the way it should, that may be correct. The title insurance protects you if something does not work the way it should. That is why lenders require title insurance.

Some of the possible title issues that can occur could be property boundaries, easements, liens not showing in title search, etc. I myself experienced an unusual easement problem with one of my clients. Somehow there was no title insurance which would have resolved the issue quickly.

Waiting for Foreclosures due to the Pandemic? Wait no more.

Thu, Feb 3rd 2022 8:24 am by David Shippey Winter Haven News

In 2021, there was a year-to-year 29% drop in home foreclosures. In Central Florida, 2021 foreclosures dropped compared to 2019.

Many thought one of the results of releasing the pandemic moratorium on foreclosures would lead to a large increase in foreclosures during 2021. That did not happen.

Many believe the increase in equity resulted in suspect homes being sold instead of going to foreclosure.
