FAQs

Why Do I Need Title Insurance?

Title Insurance protects you from things that have already happened, but are unknown or hidden. View some examples.

What is a Full Alta Lenders Policy?

A Full Alta Lenders Policy is a full coverage policy that insures the lender against loss due to unknown defects in title and ensures that the lender has a valid and enforceable lien on the insured property.

What is a Full Alta Owners Policy?

A Full Alta Owners Policy is a full coverage policy that insures the owner of a property against title defects that existed prior to the issuance of the policy. For a one-time premium, the policy covers financial losses up to the amount of the policy and the full cost of any legal defense of your title when valid claims are filed for as long as you own the property.

What is a Junior Policy?

A Junior Policy is a limited coverage policy showing outstanding encumbrances against a property. This policy is usually used for second mortgages. This policy is designed for one-four family residential properties and can not be used for commercial properties or bare land.

An uninsured report (O & E Report) is available which identifies the current owners of a property and existing encumbrances.

What is a Plat Drawing?

A Plat Drawing provides a non-surveyed drawing of residential properties based on physical inspections and an inspection report identifying various characteristics of the property.
