A Title Abstract is a summary of public records pertaining to
the title of a specific piece of property. An attorney or
title insurance company reviews the title abstract to determine
whether there are any concerns (defects of title) which must be
cleared before a buyer can purchase a clear and insurable title
to the property.
Insurance issued by a title company in order to protect the
property owner against loss if it is discovered that the title
to the property contains a defect. In the event the insured
owner suffers a monetary loss due to a lien or other title
defect, the title insurer defends the insured against a lawsuit
attacking the title, or provides reimbursement up to the amount
of the title insurance policy.
