About Title Insurance
Title insurance is not as well understood as other types of home insurance, but it is just as important. You see, when purchasing a home, instead of purchasing the actual building or land, you are really purchasing the title to the property - the right to occupy and use the space. That title may be limited by rights and claims asserted by others, which may limit your use and enjoyment of the property and even bring financial loss. Title insurance protects against these types of title hazards.
Other types of insurance that protect your home focus on possible future events and charge an annual premium. On the other hand, title insurance protects against loss from hazards and defects that already exist in the title and is purchased with a one-time premium. Learn more…
Stewart Title Company began in Galveston, Texas, in 1893 when Maco Stewart, a young Galveston attorney, purchased the Gulf City Abstract Company. Maco continued to issue abstracts through the Stewart Law & Land Title Office until 1905, when he and brother Minor offered the first title insurance in Texas in the form of an indemnity against loss due to title claims. From that time Stewart Title continued to grow. Stewart began to trade publicly in 1973, and now has more than 8,000 policy-issuing offices and agencies around the world.
