It’s important to do a title search any time you buy a piece of real estate. A title search will show you a history of the property. It will show you if there’s any liens on the property or unpaid mortgages or any problems that could affect your title to the property. Title insurance is commonly seen in most transactions in Florida. Anything involving financing, the bank is going to require title insurance. Title insurance is exactly what it sounds like. It insures that no one has a claim to the title of your home. It’s insured up to the full purchase price and it grants you protection from anyone coming back to say they have a claim on the property.
