An " Owner's Title Insurance Policy" is based on the purchase price of the property. The State of Florida Department of Insurance publishes title insurance standard rates( promulgated ) which determine the amount of the premium. Our office charges the promulgated rate. If a buyer is securing financing for their new purchase, the lender will also require a separate, simultaneous issued, " Mortgagor's Title Insurance Policy", to insure the amount of the loan. If an owner is refinancing their property, the new lender will require a lender's policy. While a refinance does not require new owner's title insurance, by providing our office with a copy of the policy, will save you money with a reissue rate on the new lender's policy, which is discounted and dictated by the state.
