When you buy a house or refinance, you need a real estate title company you can trust to conduct your closing. Many people don’t realize that they have the right to choose their own title company. While going with their lender or realtor’s suggestion, is sometimes the right choice, it can often lead to higher closing fees and a lapse in customer service. More and more individuals are using the internet to research everything from their next TV purchase to where they’re having dinner for the evening.
A title company insures the purchaser(s) or lender that the property is free and clear of any title issues. They coordinate among all parties to the transaction including the local municipalities from the time the order is received through the day of closing. The title company also handles the funds, records documents at the courthouse and issues the actual title policy.
