Is An Owner’s Title Insurance Policy Important?
These videos explain why the answer to that question is a DEFINITE YES!

Rock Star Protection

This is the story of Mickey Rose and Janie Su. That is, Janie the Mickey Rose super fan. After Janie cashed in her life savings to purchase the home of her music idol, she later discovered that her ownership rights were in question because the seller wasn't the real Mickey Rose. He was an imposter who took the money and ran.

Because Janie didn't have an owner's policy of title insurance, she was left unprotected.

The Flamingo Invasion

Penelope's life was in perfect order, until her neighbor Edna moved in. Not only did their styles clash, but so did their understanding of the location of true boundary line that separated their properties. Now Edna's latest construction project interferes with Penelope's ability to enjoy the investment she made in her prize garden.  

Penelope declined the owner's title insurance policy when she bought her home, now she regrets that choice.

Tom the Caveman's Primal Property

Tom led a civil life in the busy hustle and bustle of the city. When he bought a remote piece of land to get away from it all, he later discovered the dirt road connecting his property to the outside world wasn't really a road. When his access was cut off, Tom was stranded without any help to defend his method of accessing the outside world.  

Tom should have bought an owner's policy of title insurance to defend his rights.
