The Superintendent of Insurance last week signed an order expanding enhanced title insurance discounts to every homeowner who refinances a mortgage in New Mexico. The discounts were advocated for by Think New Mexico, the independent statewide think tank that successfully championed a reform to the state’s title insurance laws in 2009. The enhanced discounts are scheduled to take effect on July 1.
Title insurance, which is required by banks before they will approve or refinance a mortgage, is one of the largest elements of a homebuyer’s upfront closing costs.
Before 2009, the prices homeowners paid for title insurance when they refinanced their mortgages were set by regulation by the Insurance Division. A policy purchased with a mortgage refinancing received a discount because the homeowner had already purchased a title insurance policy for the property when he or she originally bought it.
