Why is the title insurance premium on the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure different from the premium listed on the paperwork I received from the title insurance company? Am I being charged more?

The Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure are new forms that go into effect on October 3, 2015.

You’re not necessarily being charged more if the amounts on your loan forms are different from your title insurance paperwork. Depending on the state where you are buying your home, your title insurance company may give you an itemized list of fees at closing. The itemized list of fees required under state law may be displayed differently than the same fees on the Loan Estimate or on the Closing Disclosure. That does not necessarily mean you are being charged more. If you add up all the title-related costs your title insurance company gives you, it should match the totals of all the title-related costs you see on the Loan Estimate or on the Closing Disclosure. When comparing costs for title insurance, make sure to compare the bottom line total.
