Things to Remember when Shopping for Title Insurance

Here are a couple things to remember when shopping for a title company.

  1.  Your real estate agent or mortgage lender may make suggestions or recommendations for a title company, but the homebuyer has the right to shop for title insurance and a title insurance company. Things you may consider when looking for a title insurance company include local expertise, service standards and connection with the community.
  2. When getting a quote, ask what services are considered in the fee. Is conducting the closing included in the cost of title insurance? Knowing what services are or are not included can help ensure equal comparisons.
