Title insurance is different from most types of insurance.
Unlike property and casualty insurance that assume risk of future incidents, the bulk of premiums written for title insurance go toward paid losses (claims) for past incidents, as well as loss prevention: searching, identifying and eliminating risks that could yield a title claim.
Title agents discover an issue with title in roughly a third of closings and resolve most title issues pre-closing. The customer may never hear about it because of title insurance. About 5% of issues result in a title claim.
