Why Choosing The Right Title Company Matters
Shopping for title insurance is one of the most important steps in the home buying process. Before you can “take title” to your new property, most lenders will require a title search to make sure there are not any issues in transferring the property into your name. Do you know the title company that you are working with?
Working with an attorney owned title company is crucial to meeting closing deadlines, says Darryll Clark, Vice President of The Closing Agent in Orlando, Florida. Issues like unpaid taxes, claims of ownership from lost heirs and liens are merely a few of the obstacles that can make or break a closing according to Clark.
Title Insurance Basics
There are two types of title insurance policies to protect against financial losses: the title insurance of the lender and the title insurance of the owner. The lender’s title insurance policy pays for the expense of researching a claim and any court costs incurred due to any disputes they may uncover.
Owner’s title insurance, meanwhile, protects you as the homeowner during any future disputes over ownership of the property. Lenders require borrowers to purchase a lender’s title insurance policy.
Why is it important to work with a local title company?
Not all title companies are the same.
Florida Realtors® knows how important it is to work with an attorney owned and operated title company like The Closing Agent. Consumers have the final say on the selection of service providers – including the title company that will handle the closing.
Here are some reasons why The Closing Agent is Florida’s leading choice in title insurance and closing services.
Reason #1 – Work with a company who is supported by the nation’s top underwriters.
Choosing a company like The Closing Agent who is underwritten by two of the country’s leading insurance underwriters, Old Republic Title Insurance Group and Westcor Land Title Insurance Company is a prudent and the safest route to ensure that your property is covered.
Reason #2 – Reliability and customer service
Distinguished customer service should always be expected. The Closing Agent has been delivering accurate and reliable title insurance and settlement services for over 25 years. Our leadership team of real estate attorneys provides a higher level of dependability than other non-attorney owned and operated title insurance agencies.
Reason # 3 – Local knowledge and experience
It is more important than ever to support our local communities where we live and work and The Closing Agent has been doing just that for over 25 years. Local companies have a higher level of commitment to the real estate professionals they work with, know the local laws and provide an additional level of assurance that your transaction will get closed on time every time. Many well-known national title insurance companies “off-shore” various parts of the work leaving the possibility of your information landing in the wrong hands. Keeping it local allows us to control the entire process from contract to closing in-house.
Reason #4 – Experience matters
Realtors® and lenders know that working with the right team can make all the difference when a closing is just around the corner. The professionals at The Closing Agent have specialized legal and underwriting knowledge obtained through many years (and transactions) and have witnessed almost every closing challenge spanning 30 years. Our Florida team knows real estate laws and always gets you to the closing table on-time, every time.
The bottom line is with 7 locations, a reliable and knowledgeable staff and years of experience, The Closing Agent is the right choice when selling or buying a home. Providing excellent customer service and innovation is our passion.
