Chicago Title Insurance Successfully Resolves an Insured’s Encroachment Issues in Quebec


At Chicago Title, we understand that owning a property comes with its own set of unique challenges. That is why we strive to provide our clients with comprehensive and unique title insurance solutions that address their specific concerns.

In April 2016, an insured acquired title to a property in Quebec, and Chicago Title issued an owner’s policy that included an Identified Risk – Enforced Removal Endorsement. This endorsement was issued to protect the insureds against the enforced removal of the water well and part of the driveway encroaching onto the neighbor’s property.

Fast forward to 2020, the neighbor in question demanded the removal of the encroachment, leaving the insured in a precarious situation. However, at Chicago Title, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our clients, and this case was no different. Instead of paying for the removal, we devised a more cost-effective solution and proposed an exchange of land between our client and the neighbor, who agreed to it.

As a result, Chicago Title paid the insured $6,139.58 for the exchange of land, making the whole process less stressful for the insured.
