Understanding the differences

Did you know that in the United States, there is no guarantee of ownership of real property? What can you do to protect your interests?

The property deed is a physical document that provides evidence that you might own real property, conveying the title to the new owner upon sale of the property.

A land survey helps to establish ownership by providing confirmation that what is transferring per the deed on paper, exists in reality.  

Title insurance allows you to confidently buy real property, or to obtain a loan to buy or develop real property, as it protects ownership and provides some assurance that one’s investment is not at risk.
