Hello Kellie,

you can check out the amount of title insurance needed at this website.
http://www.alphaadv.net/patitle/ratecalc.html.
On top of that there may be other charges such as charges for endorsements to the title, recording fees (which are a little higher in Philadelphia) notary fees and possibly aq settlement fee. You can save a few dollars by shopping around.

If you're leaving the existing areas intact . . .
