Marketability Satisfied by Reissue

This Policy insures against loss or damage which the insured may sustain by reason of said right, claim, or matter, including unmarketability of title; provided, however, that with respect to said right, claim, or matter, the offer of any licensed title insurance company to insure the title to the land in the manner set forth herein shall be conclusive evidence of the marketability of the title hereby insured. The Company agrees that upon request of any mortgagee or purchaser of the insured (or the mortgagee of such purchaser), it will issue its policy containing the same affirmative coverage set forth herein, but subject to the same condition. The Company shall not be liable for any loss or damage sustained by the insured by reason of rejection of title by a proposed purchaser, mortgagee, or assignee, or refusal to make a loan, or refusal to purchase the mortgage by reason of the right, claim, or matter, provided the insurance is available as set forth herein.
