In order for property to pass properly from one owner to the other, the title should be free and clear of any encumbrances.
Title insurance helps protect an owner’s interest in land by ensuring that title to the property was valid when it was received. If title was not valid, it may be possible to bring a lawsuit against the title insurance company.

Prosecuting and Defending Title Insurance Claims
Title insurance protects property owners from financial losses caused by defects in a title occurring before the date of the policy. If a property buyer discovers liens or defects in the title that were not discovered prior to the time of purchase, the owner’s best recourse may to bring a claim against the title insurance company.

Since its inception in 1954, Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald, LLP has grown from a small, local, general practice into the larger multi-disciplinary, regional firm it is today, serving clients throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Northeast.
