Are all title companies the same?
Not all title companies are the same. Unfortunately, Florida’s one of the few states that allows title companies to be run by non lawyers. If you hire a title company, always make sure that it is owned and operated and run by a real estate lawyer. The advantages to that are that lawyers are governed by the Florida bar and buy a strict guidelines in order to protect their clients. Not all title companies have attorneys that work for them. So if you are hiring a title company in Florida, a real estate lawyer will be the best experience to guide you through the transaction and get you to the closing table.
