Is title insurance recommended for a home that I have been the only owner of?

Question Details: About 9 years go, I bought a brand new single family house from the builder along with title insurance as required by the bank. If my brother is buying my house for all cash, should he also buy title insurance? I have been the only owner of the house so far and my lawyer/title insurance company already ran all the checks when I bought it? Is there still a risk of title issues? Is there a way to "pass on" the insurance to his name? If we approach the lawyer/company who ran the title search last time, would they give significant discount?
