Your Easy Resource For Closing Your Loan

When closing your loan, it is your right to choose your real estate settlement company – not your realtor or your banker, you choose.
We hope you choose us.

true-blue-promiseYou’re signing the contract and your realtor asks,
“Where do you want to close?”
If you’re like most, you shrug and say,
“I don’t know. Where do you suggest?”

You worked very hard to pick the right realtor, the right lender, the right property, but when it comes to a settlement agent, most don’t even give it a second thought.

You should.

Your settlement agent is responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars from the lender and disbursing that money in multiple directions. Your settlement agent must be certain that all funds are correct, disbursed promptly, and protected from fraud.

Title Company vs. Law Office

Both are good choices. However, a law office handles much more than real estate transactions. A title company focuses only on real estate transactions. It’s what we do all day, every day. Secondly, the law office will contact the title company to order the title search and title insurance commitment, so why not just go to the source?

So, How Do You Choose A Title Company?

Here are some questions you should ask:

  1. Where is the title company located? Ask yourself, “Is there a good title company near me?
  2. How long has the title company been in business and what is the experience level of the settlement agent handling your transaction?
  3. Does the title company provide title insurance? If so, with whom do they underwrite?
  4. Do their insurance agents have abstracting (title searching) experience?
  5. What are the title company’s settlement fees?
  6. Does the lender or real estate agent benefit from your use of this title company?
  7. How many E&O (Errors & Omissions) claims has the title company had to make in the last five years?

Why did we change our name to Blue Ink Original?

The court clerks prefer that signatures be made using blue ink to differentiate originals from copies. Professional Titles is the original title, settlement, and escrow business in Front Royal, Virginia. So to distinguish us from the rest we decided to change our name to Blue Ink Original, but we are still your “Professional Title” resource.
