Washington DC Real Estate Resource Center: What is a Home Title?

As a first-time homebuyer, there are many new real estate terms and concerns you'll become familiar with. One such term is known as a title, or, simply put, a record of property ownership in which the owner has the legal right to possess a property.

Title Search

During the purchase of a home, the buyer must employ a title company to do a title search, which closely examines the home's title and looks for any liens against the property. The title search ensures that the buyer has the legal right to buy and re-sell the property and protect others from challenging the homeowner's right to the property.

Title insurance

To further the homeowner's legal right to a property, a buyer purchases title insurance. Title insurance makes the title company legally responsible for any missed items during the title search and if any title problems arise, the title company defends the title in court.
