Buying a home can be a stressful time. When you get to the closing you don’t want to have to worry about any last minute problems. When you choose ACR Title Group, we’ve got your back. Our experienced staff will work closely with your real estate agent, finance company and escrow agent to manage the closing on your home so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
What does a Title Company do?
The title company is responsible for researching the chain of title and conducting a property survey which will ensure that the title is free and clear of any liens, outstanding loans, special assessments, past due taxes or prior claims. They also confirm that the wording on your title accurately describes who has the right to transfer ownership, how you pay property taxes and that the survey describes the homes’ property lines accurately so you can buy your home with confidence.
What about the Closing?
The closing of your home, or ‘settlement’ is usually handled by the title company. They prepare all of the closing documents, provide a signing agent or real estate attorney to do a final review of all of the paperwork and finalize the deed and title transfer. They also may hold your escrow money with the assistance of an escrow agent and distribute the payout at closing.
