quonsar's kneejerk rant of the day
"Title company employees did not tell them the most commonly used policy has five standard exceptions -- things it does not cover."
and those are precisely the things which people believe they are protected from. most policies exclude any liability arising from unrecorded deeds, and there is no requirement to record (make a public record of) a deed in michigan. the policy is useless, yet no bank will give you a loan without one. standard residential title insurance is nothing more than a tool used by greedy banks and title firms to bilk the homebuyer under the guise of "closing costs".
