Protect yourself against the unknown

Purchasing and owning property, whether it’s your new home, cottage or investment property, is a big investment that comes with a certain amount of risk. We can protect your new property against the following unexpected issues:

Title fraud

If someone steals your identity, they could also try to steal your house by changing the name on the title. If this happens, we’ll cover your legal costs and help defend your title.

Property encroachment

Structures are sometimes unintentionally built on neighbouring properties and need to be moved. Title insurance can help cover the costs associated with moving them.

Unknown title issues

It’s possible that an error in the title will be discovered after you’ve purchased a property, bringing your ownership into question. Our team will help you resolve the issue.

Gap coverage

There’s a gap between when your property purchase is finalized or closed, and when the title is officially registered with the government. Our title insurance will protect you during this time.

Legal negligence

Errors made by your lawyer related to the title of your property may happen. They shouldn’t be your problem. Title insurance keeps you protected.

Pre-existing liens on the property

Don’t let someone else's mistakes become your problem. If the previous owner left unpaid utilities or property taxes, title insurance ensures you won’t have to pay them. We have you covered.

Municipal issues

If the previous homeowner renovated without the necessary permits, the municipality can force you to remove or remedy their work. We'll cover those costs.

Survey defects

Survey or records errors such as out-of date or incorrect previous surveys can cost you time and money to correct. We’ll make sure any errors are addressed.
