The side with the more compelling reason wins :), or the side with the most to lose should be more flexible,
or follow the golden rule.... "He who has the gold,....RULES!"
Congratulations on your sale!
I know the buyer's agent doesnt understand this process or try to educate the buyer, well as said that it's ok to use buyer's side title, all you have to do is coordinate with their title company and forward your approved hud1 to the buyer agent and their title company to match exactly the same numbers with their hud1 or lower but make sure the pay-off amount for the lender should match or higher than your approved one. And also close on time according to the lender time line. The lender will not care as long as they get their pay-off amount and nothing additional from their side, but you can double check with your lender also (I had the same situation and lender didnt create any problems)..... Good luck on your approved short sale.

Just ask for a new approval with the new title company hoping that the seller agrees.
It is just a minor setback.. .
