Canadian legal professionals rely on Stewart Title’s policies to safeguard your investment against losses arising from risks that reach beyond the scope of a traditional lawyer’s/notary’s opinion. Our policies reduce due diligence searches and help facilitate the timely closing of your transaction.
Our Owner Policy is available for a one-time premium and coverage is in effect for as long as you retain an ownership interest in the property. The duty to defend contained within the policy means that covered losses include legal expenses associated with defending the insured’s title.
We provide title insurance for transactions that range from the simple to the most complex. Our broad portfolio of title insured commercial properties is among the strongest and most impressive in the industry and includes properties as varied as:
Title insurance protects against loss from intervening registrations taking place between the closing date and the date the insured instrument is registered. Registration gap coverage is essential where acquisitions or financing take place in several provinces concurrently (for transactions involving multiple sites) or where there are inherent delays in the provincial registration system.
It takes experience, responsiveness and dedication to complete all aspects of a cross-border transaction. Stewart Title has the resources to understand the nature of your transaction and how best to protect it.
REITS have unique title insurance requirements for which we offer a custom-designed policy for both purchase and mortgage transactions. Stewart Title has streamlined the policy issuing process to ensure a fast turnaround so that REIT transactions close on time. Whether it is a single or multi-site transaction, we provide gap coverage between the advance of funds and the registration of closing documents.
