There is no set rule on who chooses the title company. It is all based upon the negotiated contract. I will tell you that on the FAR/BAR Purchase Agreement (used by licensed Realtors), the contract states that whomever selects the title company gets to pay for the Owner's Policy and closing charges, but this is not written in stone. It is all part of the negotiations.
If you need additional help, I would recommend that you contact Lorraine Cesare at Trinity Title of Pasco at 727-372-2322. Her team does a great job in getting real estate transactions closed smoothly and efficiently.
