Have you seen our video about how to control closing costs? A title company must be unbiased in their decision making process. A title company is like a judge or a referree and it completely defeats the purpose of having a neutral decision maker if one of the parties owns the title company. We have seen how removing the impartiality of a title company and placing them in strong relationships with a service provider causes fees to go up and service to go down. Our belief that the title company investigative, examination and decision making process must be independent of everyone at the closing table isn't just a philosophy, it is really the only way title should be done. We are one of the few title companies that maintains impartiality as key principle of doing business.
