The policy provides coverage against losses due to title defects, even if the defects existed before you purchased your home.

For freehold homes, the builder pays the warranty enrolment fee to Tarion on or before the date the building permit for the home is issued. Condominiums are enrolled at least 30 days before construction begins. Tarion then gives the builder an enrolment number for the home. Some builders will include the warranty enrolment fee in the purchase price of the home, while others show it as an item on the Statement of Adjustments.
The cost of the warranty is based on a scale related to the sale price of homes and condominiums.
