Title Insurance

Title insurance, required for most real estate transactions, protects the buyer in case previously unknown claims against the property arise.  The insurance ensures that the new property owner will not pay the costs of defending their title.  A more in-depth discussion of title insurance is available from the Maryland Insurance Administration, the independent state agency that regulates title agents and insurers.

Progressive Title are agents with two of the largest and most established title insurers in the country, Fidelity and First American.  This ensures that you will not be left in the lurch by a fly-by-night insurer that might go out of business before you needed their help.  We are agents for these insurers because we know they will provide the peace-of-mind that you need.
