Wire fraud scams are plaguing the industry, making real estate closings a target. Our experts stay up-to-date on the latest news about this issue so that we can always be one step ahead. We take every precaution to ensure that our closings are secure – and that the money always makes it into the right hands.
Believe it or not, refinancing a property that you already own often still warrants the help of a title company as most lenders will require a new title insurance policy as a condition of the new loan.
Home Buyer Education
Buying a home for the first time can be very confusing. There are certain steps you have to follow, requirements that need to be met, unfamiliar terms to learn, and more. At Pride Settlement, we welcome you and guide you through the process – answering any questions you may have along the way.
New construction transactions often come with some strict requirements that must be followed. This involves all the right documentation, the proper handling of an escrow account, and monitoring the progress of the construction. And, even though the house or structure may be new, the land is not. So, a title search will be required, too.
Due to the complexity of these transactions, don’t settle for less than the highly experienced team at Pride Settlement.
LIfe is busy – we get it. Instead of making things more complicated than they need to be, we offer remote closings. That way you can handle all the document signing at a place and time that is most convenient for you.
Title insurance can protect you from any title defects that could arise the day after you close or ten years down the road. For a one-time premium payment at closing, you will be protected for as long as you have an interest in the property.

Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate transactions can be complicated – often with more money and more people involved than any other. With these high stakes, you need Pride Settlement’s streamlined processes to get you straight through to the closing.
What do I need to know about Title Insurance?
What is a title insurance company?
Your Title Insurance Company is responsible for the facilitation of your real estate transaction. They will search your property history, review and verify that the terms of your contract have been met, facilitate the disbursement of funds, and guide you through the closing process to welcome you home.
Do I need title insurance?
An Owner’s Title Insurance Policy protects your right to own your property against potential defects in your title. Title defects are rare but can have a profound impact on your right to ownership. Keep in mind, if you seek a mortgage, your mortgage lender will always have a Lender’s Policy with coverage to protect your loan. You too should obtain your own peace of mind.
How much does title insurance cost?
The cost of title insurance is billed to you one time at the time of closing as part of your closing costs. This single fee will purchase you a policy that will protect you over the life of your time owning the property as well as be extended to your heirs. The cost of title insurance is regulated and based on the price of your property. For a quote, please contact our team.
Is there more than one type of title insurance?
Yes. The two main types of title insurance are owner’s title insurance and lender’s title insurance. A lender’s policy, as its name suggests, protects the lender. An owner’s policy protects the owner from any title defects that may arise – and may be offered with different levels of coverage.
What happens prior to closing?
Before you head to the closing table, we will ensure that all of the terms of your contract are met. This includes coordinating the results of your inspection, survey, mortgage loan approval process, and collection of funds.
What happens at closing?
At closing we will review the terms of your sale, facilitate the signing of your documents, and conduct a disbursement of funds to the correct parties. In many cases, your deed is recorded the same day and a copy of your paperwork will be delivered to you for your records.
