Whenever you change the terms of your of your mortgage, you are affecting other lienholders. When a change in your mortgage terms has negative effects on another lienholder, that lienholder moves ahead of your lender in terms of their legal rights, This is not acceptable to your lender, Therefore, the lender requires title insurance guarantying them there are no lienholders ahead of them.
