Is Title Insurance Optional?I have some questions concerning title insurance. Is this insurance optional? How much should one expect to pay for the coverage?
Answer: Yes, title insurance is usually optional. Your lender may require that you pay for it to cover the asset (and them) in case of a problem, but this requirement would be on a lender-by-lender basis. As for the cost of title insurance, it varies considerably. Can I suggest some comparison-shopping to get an idea of price?
