How Title Insurance Protects You From Missing Heirs

While many property transactions go smoothly, issues can arise in seemingly unlikely scenarios that become all too real once the situation has been clarified. One example of this kind of situation is the problem of a missing heir.

Say a single homeowner sells his house. He has a son whom he has not heard from for many years and has no idea what became of him. The son finds out about the transaction and returns, claiming an interest in the property. Because he is an heir to his father’s interests, he does have a right to a share of the value of the property. Without title insurance, this would create an expensive problem for the buyers. But with the protection of title insurance, the title company would settle this claim, and the buyers would not have to pay for the son’s interest in the property.
