As a settlement agent, New World Title & Escrow is charged with the duty of carrying out the terms of a real estate transaction according to the agreements between the seller and purchaser, and/or the borrower and lender. We compile the relevant information and documents, accept and retain in trust monies from lenders and/or purchasers, conduct a meeting of the parties (i.e. "the settlement") where legal documents are reviewed and executed, record documents with the appropriate jurisdiction, and distribute monies entrusted to us as required. In doing this, we owe a duty of trust to all participants in the transaction. As such, we maintain surety bonds and insurance as required by law.

Title insurance protects an owner's and lender's interest in real estate. For homeowners it insures that they have title to real estate free of any liens, encumbrances or other title defects so that they can occupy, use and sell their real estate without the risk of loss. Unlike other insurance such as auto, home, health and life which protect against potential future events, title insurance protects against events that occurred in the past of the real property and those who had owned it. Likewise, unlike other types of insurance which require monthly, semi-annual or annual premium payments, owners' title insurance premiums are paid once at settlement when you purchase your property. The protection extends throughout the time the policyholder owns the property and even after it is sold. Owners' title insurance comes in standard and enhanced policies. Enhanced policies cost more but provide coverage for additional risks. Lenders ordinarily require that title insurance be purchase on their behalf, at the borrower's expense. Lenders' title insurance only protects a lender's security interest in real property and will not protect the owner and, unlike owner’s policies, terminates when the loan is paid off.
