Creditors' Rights Risk Under Title Insurance Policies


The creditors’ rights exclusion under a title insurance policy is intended to make clear that a title insurance policy does not provide protection for post-policy challenges to the insured title or to the validity, enforceability, or priority of the lien of the insured mortgage arising solely out of the insured transaction (not one in the past chain of title), whereby the transfer to the insured owner or lender of its interest in the land is determined to be a fraudulent transfer or conveyance, or a preferential transfer, under either state or federal law. With respect to the loan policy only, the creditors’ rights exclusion also confirms that no protection is provided to the insured lender if a challenge is made to the priority of the lien of the insured mortgage based on the bankruptcy doctrine of equitable subordination.
