The general rule is yes, it is best to buy title insurance when making a real estate purchase.

The title insurance company does the background title work to make sure you get clear title, and then they guarantee their work with an insurance policy.

Most people do not have the time, skill or background to do their own title work so it makes sense to let the title insurance company do this work.

Hi Erika,

From my understanding is NO title company will sell your title insurance for foreclosure homes at auction. You can call title company near your home and check for yourself.

MOST DEFINATELY, the cost of title insurance is minimal cpomapred to the cost oif a deed problem or problem with the foreclosure is found later., It is actually recomended for all purchases.
