Be Sure Your Property Rights are Protected
Whether you’re buying, selling or refinancing, you can count on Prairie Title to ensure there are no issues associated with the title. Verifying the legal documents for closing is a complex process. We search public records for previous liens, tax issues, ownership disputes, forgery or fraud, and anything that could affect the property.
After we search the records and verify the property rights, we commit to providing you with title insurance—and peace of mind for a smooth and efficient closing.
Why Title Insurance is Important
What title insurance does is provide peace of mind that the property has no outstanding claims on it. Lenders need to know that they are the first lien on the property and title insurance provides that clear record of ownership.
