Who Chooses the title Company?
Updated: Dec 27, 2019
A better question is who is paying for the title insurance?
The party paying is usually the one that picks the title company.
In most of Florida, the payer is usually the seller, although there are exceptions in certain counties including Broward, Miami-Dade, Colier and Sarasota.
When you are ready to go to the process of settlement a title, your main focus is in the property you are buying or selling. You trust the real estate agent or the lender when they tell you to contact X title company for this important main event. Did they ask you if you have your own title company? or tell you that you can shop around?
What many home buyer's don't realize is choosing a Title Company is a right they shouldn't give up without making sure they are doing business with a company of their choice. Don't be indifferent about what title company to use. The title company has great participation whether a property purchase or sale closes smoothly and successfully or not. You have the right to compare title companies by asking questions about their fees, accessibility, methods of communication and more.
