OWNER'S POLICY

The owner's policy protects against a loss that may occur from a fault in your ownership or interest you have in the property. A title policy will protect the equity in your new home.

We offer an enhanced lender's title policy upon request.
E-mail info@federaltitle.com to inquire.

Note: When calculating the cost of a policy, please keep in mind we use a tiered rate. So if the purchase price is $600k and a standard owner's title policy is purchased, the cost is calculated by multiplying:

250 x $5.70 = $1,425250 x $5.10 = $1,275
100 x $4.50 = $450

Total = $3,150
+ (Simultaneous Rate) $150
Grand Total = $3,300

Simultaneous issue transaction

When an owner's policy and a loan policy are issued simultaneously, the rate applicable for the owner's policy shall be the regular owner's rate. In all cases the owner's policy shall be issued for the sale price of the property or, in the event there is no sale, the value of the premises.

An additional $150 will be added to the premium whenever a simultaneous issue occurs. These rates are based on the First American Title Insurance Company "Eagle Policy." Quotes for other title insurance products are available upon request.

Title insurance re-issue rate policy

To qualify for a reissue rate, the borrower must provide the (seller's) current owner's title policy, which must be less than 10 years old. The reissue rate is based on the face amount (coverage) of the (seller's) current policy.
