Donke, Home Buyer in Quakertown, PA

I am buying a house in PA? Who should I use for the title? An attorney? A large company my broker recommends? One my lender recommends?Does it matter?

It is your choice. Ask for quotes from all of them. I would not automatically select the one the broker and lender recommend because they may get some benefit from your using them and they may not want you to "rock the boat" and ask for services you deserve if they are "friends" or affiliated.

If you trust your agent and/or lender, and they have a title company that they do repeat business with, then in my opinion that would be your best bet. In my experience, transactions run smoothest when the key people (agents, lenders, title companies, home inspectors, etc.) have established working relationships with each other.

Any of the aforementioned options would perform the function you require. Outside of the attorney option, costs should be similar. Good Hunting!

I would go with the lender or the real estate company. That usually are more comfortable with each other and it helps the transaction go smoothly.

Let me know if I can help at all.

Title costs are set regardless of who you go with...only differences are going to be recording fees, notary fees and forms...an attorney will charge an attorney fee plus title costs...but all things being equal...the lender is giving you the money...I'd go with them!
