Title Insurance for Home Equity Lending

In today’s home equity lending environment, quick and thorough title information is essential to optimize every lending opportunity, while mitigating common and unforeseen risks. equiSmart™ provides all the title data needed to make sound title decisions while providing title insurance coverage.  

The decision on what title product to use when originating home equity loans or lines of credit often comes down to price point. However, without comparing uninsured options versus title insurance coverage you may not select the right product given the risk associated with the property. Here’s where title insurance, and in particular, equiSmart™, offers a real advantage.

The equiSmartTM Advantage

equiSmart1 provides coverage for monetary liens, mortgagor vesting on the last document recorded in the public record, fraud or forgeries in the execution of the security instrument to be insured, and the gap period between the issuance of the title product and the recording of your security instrument. Additionally, coverage is provided for the full life of the loan (line of credit) and it automatically transfers to a subsequent owner of the indebtedness should the loan be sold.

In addition, we offer a solar lien endorsement option that allows you to offer home equity products to more homeowners. It provides options other than paying off or subordinating the solar lien which adds cost and time.

As with any insurance contract, the insuring provisions express the coverage afforded by the title insurance policy and there are exceptions, exclusions and conditions to coverage that limit or narrow the coverage afforded by the policy. Some coverage may not be available in a particular area or transaction due to legal, regulatory, or underwriting considerations. The services described above may differ due to the specifics of your transaction or the location of the real property involved.
