American Land Title Association

Real estate title insurance real estate title insurance, also called simply “title insurance” is an American invention, which is popular in that country, having become especially important in the last century. Its current use covers the entire American union and all types of real estate transactions, including commercial and residential. This is a compensation contract that covers risks arising from faults or defects that can be contained in the deeds, registered or not in a public registry of property, causing damage to the insured. The coverage is permanent, while the insured or his heirs retain an interest in the property. The recruitment of such insurance is effected through highly specialized insurance companies, two of which operate in Mexico, who not only undertake to make appropriate coverage, but also to assist with the insured during the entire operation process estate until the end of it.There are standard policies for both property owners and crors, themselves governed by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) of the United States.

The clauses of the policies, including coverages, exclusions and exceptions, are similar, mutatis mutandis, in the U.S. and Mexico. In our country include risks of ejido and communal property, unknown in that country. The procedures for the procurement of insurance and for appropriate compensation claim are similar in the two countries, but show differences that address the particularities of our respective legal systems.
