1 Title Insurance Endorsements Coverage Descriptions & Fees

2

3 This Booklet has been prepared by Lawyers Title to assist you in understanding endorsements issued in conjunction with a title insurance policy. Use this information as a guide. It does not contain a complete list of all available endorsements. Endorsements may be defined as additions to a title insurance policy. They are most often used to expand the coverage provided under the policy. Occasionally, however, they are used to limit the policy coverage. Endorsements may be issued with either a Standard or Extended Coverage Policy. Also, they may be issued in favor of an owner, lender or both, depending on the nature of the coverage. Endorsements are negotiable and therefore should be requested early in the transaction. Endorsement coverages and forms are designed and used by the various land title associations. Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation, issues endorsements created by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the California Land Title Association (CLTA). In order to easily find one of the CLTA Endorsements, they have been grouped under the same number series. For example, the 100 series cover Restriction (CC&Rs), the 101 and 102 series cover Construction and Mechanics Lien problems, the 103 series cover Easement and the 104 series cover Deed of Trust and Assignment. The following pages list the endorsements which have been filed with the California Department of Insurance and are available to our customers. Questions regarding price, endorsements forms and coverages should be directed to the Title Department or your Escrow Officer.
