“In this first-party title insurance case, the insured lenders stipulated in a Morris agreement that their deeds of trust on the property were inferior to competing mechanic’s liens, and to the amount the lien claimants would receive from the sale of the property to satisfy their liens. The insurer does not challenge these stipulations but contends there is no coverage because the insureds were fully repaid. Can the insurer contest coverage for the insured lenders’ title insurance claims based on policy provisions stating that the insurer’s liability for loss or damage shall not exceed the indebtedness owed to the insured and stating that there is no coverage for title defects or liens resulting in no loss to the insured ?”
