Dictionary Says

Definition of 'Title Binder'


A temporary form of real estate insurance coverage related to the transfer of ownership. A title binder is typically used to protect both the seller and buyer of a real estate property during the transitional phase of a sale when the seller's and buyer's home insurance policies do not necessarily overlap over the same time frame. Although they are not legally required in all cases, title binders are a common protective insurance in real estate transactions.
