Title Insurance Exceptions and Requirements

Identify the key sections of the commitment for title insurance.

Preparation for the real estate closing requires familiarity with title insurance commitment, policy and endorsement forms. Eliminating roadblocks to closing requires transaction counsel to provide the title insurer with timely documentation, an explanation of client expectations and a perspective on the transaction that may not be apparent from the public land records alone. Insight in how to work with the title agency and work as a team in order to maximize coverage is important in advancing client objectives.
