THE INCREDIBLE EXTENDED COVERAGE:
Title Mark, LLC is proud to offer the ALTA Homeowner's Policy. This policy provides extended coverage against losses due to an additional 29 types of title risks. Many of these coverages are for risks that could not be known or prevented at the time the home is purchased. Imagine the peace of mind in having coverage against a future neighbor someday building a garage that encroaches onto your property.
NO ADDITIONAL COST:
