Depending upon the consequences of the breach, the title insurer would take whatever action is required to resolve the matter - this could range from agreeing to cover the purchaser from any actual loss they might suffer in the future to covering your costs of an action to force the purchaser to complete. If your action was not successful, compensating you for any loss of bargain or diminution in value of your property.
