4.2.5 Title Insurance
Maryland has no reported case involving whether a transfer to a revocable trust voids the owner’s title policy under standard underwriting. An unreported Wyoming case, however, held that such a policy does not continue for the benefit of the grantor after the transfer into trust. Covalt v. First Am. Title Ins., 105 F.3d 669, 1997 U.S. App. LEXIS 261 (1997); see Murray, “Transfers to Trust: Does Title Insurance Continue?” First American Title, www.firstam.com (2007) (Mr. Murray’s conclusion is “no”). Also see Rivin and Stikker, “Title Insurance for Estate Planning Transfers,” Probate & Property (May/June 1998 ABA).
