Congratulations! You’ve purchased a tax deed property in Pennsylvania. While you may want to skip to cracking open the bottle of champagne, the hard work isn’t over yet. Investors need to ensure that their assets are protected — a process that can be both time-consuming and expensive. By calling the professionals at Tax Title Services (TTS), however, you can have your investment insured and in your name in as little as four weeks’ time.
Read on to find out how TTS can help bypass the need for quiet title action and protect your real estate investment.
Oftentimes obtaining title insurance involves an action to quiet title after purchasing the property. An action to quiet title is a lawsuit that eliminates an alternate party’s claim to the title of a property. The process can cost upwards of $3,000 and can take anywhere from a few months to more than a year, during which time your investment will stay unprotected and uninsured.
The Pennsylvania Insurance Commission regulates title insurance, and the cost is set by the State of Pennsylvania. The cost varies based on the sales price or mortgage amount—whichever is higher—and the buyer is responsible for title insurance costs at closing. Lender’s title insurance is required in Pennsylvania for those who used a lender to purchase their property. Owner’s title insurance is not required — especially if the buyer paid cash for the property. However, legal experts in the area strongly recommend purchasing title insurance to protect the integrity of your investment.
