My experience with Cartus was TERRIBLE! My husband and I were buying our first house. We had no idea what Cartus was, but really liked the house. We put an offer in early January, they accepted and we had our whole home inspection completed. They found some significant electrical issues. We hired an electrician to give us a quote on how much it would take to fix teh problem. We sent the information back to cartus asking them to fix it, while we would fix the rest of the issues the inspection found. Cartus wanted to get their own quote, so we waited, and waited, and waited. Usually you and the seller have 3 days to come to an agreement after the inspection has been completed. But in this case, we had to use the contract provided from Cartus, which did not state a time period. So they took a full 10 business days to get another quote, and then decided that our original quote was good enough. Since this was going on during the winter, some of the electrical work was difficult to finish during the snow. Because of all of the delays we had to pay an extra $550 in order to lock in our low interest rate. We paid it because the $550 would overall be cheaper than risk the increase of the interest rate. Well here we are, the day of the closing, and we have all of our paperwork together, including the down payment check. Just got a call from our realtor, and found out that Cartus did not send in the Title of the house, so even though we will pay the downpayment etc., we still will not receive the keys to the house or OWN the house until Cartus sends in the Title. This company is a complete joke. It has been one thing after another with them. I am so glad this is finially coming to an end. If possible, avoid buying a house from them at all costs. It has cost us extra money, as well as extra stress, and a crazy long closing (3 months). Sorry for the long response, but this is just absurd.
