When buying or selling a home, condo or vacant land in Gainesville and Alachua County, it is customary for the SELLER to select the closing agent in your real estate transaction. Please note that this is standard for Alachua County, and other counties in Florida may be different.
Since it is the sellers burden(and expense) to provide the buyer with clear title via an Owners Title Policy – it is therefore the sellers choice. Normally, per our Florida Contract, the buyer will require the seller to provide title insurance to the buyer prior to closing.
Sellers may select a personal real estate attorney or a title company. The buyers’ lender will coordinate the loan package and mortgage title policy with the sellers’ closing agent. If the seller selects an attorney, that attorney represents the SELLER. If a buyer chooses their own real estate attorney, then their attorney must coordinate the transaction with the sellers attorney and/or title company.
