The title companies are so heavily regulated by RESPA it is virtually impossible to be represented with service less than what you are paying for. Title company closing fees are "fixed", not negotiable and regulated by HUD. I would suggest using a solid, well backed insurance company such as Fidelity Title, Chicago Title, First American Title. Many of these title companies are merging under a single parent company offering even more strength than before. Good luck!

Hello Jane. You should interview whom ever you will be doing business with. I use Shelly Beam at Empire Escrow (909) 941-9698. She is awesome! She has always been honest with me and she knows what she is doing. Good luck!

I agree with what Diane said below. The title companies and escrow companies are all governed and have to make sure everything is legal. They all charge about the same amount of money and have knowledge of how things work or they would not be in the industry! I would look in your phone book under title companies and escrow companies and talk to a few to see who you like the best and also ask for the amounts they charge. Good luck!
