Why First Title?

Encroaching structures build on your land
Coverage if someone builds a structure other than a boundary wall or fence, that is on your land in the future.
Identity theft and fraud
ID fraud could result in your home being transferred to another owner or mortgaged without your knowledge. If this happens, you would be covered.
Illegal or unapproved structures
To repair or demolish illegal or unapproved structures such as decks, pergolas or carports where your local council issues an order to do so.
To rectify incorrect boundaries, for example if you discover your garden shed or fence is on your neighbour’s property and needs to be moved.
Planning and zoning
Coverage for any loss because you cannot use your property as your home as a result of planning and zoning laws.
Third parties casuing structures to be removed
If a third party who has a legal right (including utility companies) requires you to remove or remediate part or all of the structures on your land, title insurance provides cover.
