Prairie Title’s Role Explained 

What’s Our Role In Your Home Purchase?

We are your title insurance agent for your real estate purchase. We work to ensure you buy your home with confidence and help protect your property rights.

How Do We Help Protect Your Property Rights? 

Prior to your closing on your home we examine and verify the legal documents for your closing.  It’s a complex process, but it’s important because it ensures the title can be legally transferred to you, the new owner.

Why Is The Process So Complex?

It’s complex because we search public and private records looking for previous liens, tax issues, unpaid child support, ownership disputes, forgery or fraud and other possible issues that could affect the property.

After we’ve search the records and verified the owner’s right to sell the property we will commit to providing you with title insurance, giving you peace of mind as you move into a new phase in your life. Then we’ll close the transaction and you can move into your new home!

It’s Your Home, You Decide

You have made the big decision to sell your home. While you focus on fielding offers and planning an exciting new life in a new home, keeping complications to a minimum will be of great value. You can rest assured that your sale will close smoothly and efficiently with no complications by choosing Prairie Title, your trusted local source for title insurance and closing services.
