ENTITLE DIRECT provides settlement services with the capability of closing purchase, sale, and refinance transactions in a location near you. However, you may wish to utilize your own settlement services provider (who in many cases may be your attorney), to assist in your closing. Also, ENTITLE DIRECT cannot provide you with legal advice, and if you have legal questions related to your closing, you should consult an attorney.
Please note that in a limited number of states you may be required to retain a local attorney due to your state's unauthorized practice of law (UPL) statutes. These states may require that you engage a local attorney to represent you in the closing or that an attorney must perform or oversee some or all aspects of a residential real estate closing. However, you always have the right to choose from whom you purchase your title insurance. ENTITLE DIRECT complies with state laws that place limits on the role of non-attorneys in real estate transactions.
At ENTITLE DIRECT we believe that consumers should always have a choice with respect to their title insurance and settlement services provider. ENTITLE DIRECT and its business partners do not practice law. Our ENTITLE DIRECT Specialists are experienced and highly qualified individuals who are specifically trained to work only on residential real estate transactions. We do recommend that whenever you have questions or need advice regarding your legal rights and responsibilities that you consult an attorney.
Even when closing with an attorney, you are still Entitled to significant savings on all title insurance policies when you use ENTITLE DIRECT. Further, we will work closely with your attorney to ensure an timely and efficent closing.
Please note that under the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act, a federal law governing virtually all residential real estate transactions, the choice of the title insurance provider ultimately rests with the party paying for the title insurance and not with any other participant in the transaction. It is your choice.
