Webinar Summary

Title insurance protects mortgage lenders when defects in a title to a property result in financial loss to the lender. The 2006 ALTA Loan Policy is considered the standard title insurance policy available for mortgage lenders. The title policy alone is rarely adequate for most real estate transactions and almost always needs to be expanded through specific title insurance endorsements based on the specific risks related to the property in the loan transaction.

In this webinar, we will review some of the more common title policy endorsements to the 2006 ALTA Loan Policy that we generally recommend our mortgage lender clients obtain when representing them in mortgage loan transactions.

You will learn:

  •  What a 2006 ALTA Loan Policy covers
  •  Common endorsements to the 2006 ALTA Loan Policy and when they apply
