What is Title?

When buying or selling real estate, both parties need fast and accurate information regarding the title to the real property involved. As a preliminary step to issuing title insurance, title searchers go through available public records to check legal ownership and recorded liens or encumbrances that affect the property. Title Guaranty of Hawaii’s Title Officers are able to identify outstanding title issues, and in many cases, help resolve them.

Title insurance protects your property against claims of ownership or defects in the title. A one-time premium keeps the policy in force as long as you own the property, and it offers you peace of mind.
