Title Insurance

Wherever in the world businesses, investors and second home buyers look to acquire property, local jurisdictional laws, procedures and risks must be considered. Most active real estate markets have a system for organizing and recording property purchases; however, those systems vary widely.

In some jurisdictions, title registries may offer some protection to registered owners and/or mortgagees. In others, purchasers may have to rely on legal opinions based on excerpts from official title records. In all cases, for an investor or mortgagor to have true peace of mind about a property acquisition, a fundamental concern should be to secure "good title."

Stewart's title guarantees and title insurance policies are crafted to address the local title issues of each foreign jurisdiction. Senior underwriters and local Stewart offices collaborate to deliver market-driven title protections, addressing pertinent concerns in local markets. By delivering title policies within local legal procedures, Stewart seeks to add value to the local conveyance process.

Whether a company is building a manufacturing plant or a natural gas pipeline, developing an industrial park or resort community, or simply expanding its present facilities, protecting a real estate investment is crucial to a company's financial security and shareholders' peace of mind. No matter what the political or legal climate, property owners around the world benefit from the financial indemnification that a Stewart title policy provides.

Stewart’s International Group protects land purchases for real estate developers, investors, and residential buyers by protecting against the unexpected, streamlining the investment process, and facilitating mortgage funding.
