Review Your Title Insurance Policy

The first step in handling a title insurance claim is to review your title insurance policy, as it will contain all the details of your coverage and the terms and conditions. The fine print in your policy documentation will illustrate what is and isn't covered, and many policies have a time limit within which claims must be filed, so be sure to act promptly!
