It seems like a simple concept; insurance to protect your ownership rights in a piece of property. Simple it may be, old it is not. Garfield Knight and Chris Hind educated Neville and I about a new product offering referred to as title insurance. The two main benefits of title insurance are that it reduces the average time to complete a mortgage to one month and it allows owners of registered land to secure a loan against that land. According to the Caribbean Title Ltd. CEO and NEM Insurance Acting General Manager, there are as many as 300,000 pieces of unregistered land in Jamaica, so the potential benefits are extensive.
Off air, we had more time to explore the concept of title insurance. Key point to note: title insurance applies to both residential and commercial property.
