The Closing 

A closing is defined as "a meeting of all parties involved in a property transaction during which pertinent documents are signed and transferred, and funds are distributed." Typically, it is handled by closing agent, either a title insurance company or an attorney, and will last approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
Title Insurance: 
Insurance against loss or damage resulting from defects or failure of title to a particular parcel of real property. It is your only protection against things such as unpaid taxes and liens, judgments against seller, fraud or forgery on deeds and wills, missing heirs, transfer by a minor, or other issues that might go undetected until after closing, which could jeopardize your ownership and investment.  An Owner’s title insurance policy will protect and defend your investment if any title claims covered by your policy are made against your property at no additional cost to you.
What Does It Cost?  
The cost varies because it is based on the purchase price. It is a one time fee regulated by the State and is paid at the closing. Although you only pay once, the protection lasts as long as you or your heirs retain an interest in the property.  There are two types of title insurance policies; The Owners Policy protects the buyer up to the purchase price; The Lenders Policy protects the lenders interest in the property, if there is a new loan.
