Title agencies provide a valuable role during property transactions and are well-versed in many areas of real estate. In addition to title work, many title agencies act as escrow holders and provide notary services.
This is helpful to your property transaction because in Florida, notary publics are required to oversee the signing of transaction documents. Throughout Florida notary publics can act as witnesses to the property closing. A title agency is also able to properly file the deed with the county recorder or registrar of deeds and has insight into the rules and regulations governing property titles in your state.
Although many mortgage lenders recommend title agencies to their borrowers, choosing a title agency is ultimately the buyer’s decision when refinancing. It never hurts to shop around and find a title agency that you are comfortable with and can provide all of the services that you need, including notary and escrow services.
