If you are getting ready to purchase or refinance property in Forest County, Pennsylvania, you need to make sure that all of your documents are lined up. That means ensuring that your title insurance is in order as well.

If you do not have title insurance when you get to the closing table, your real estate transaction could be canceled. At the same time, you are under no obligation to go with the title insurance provider offered to you by your lender. Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), you have the right to choose your own title insurance company, and that is where we can help you.

At World Wide Land Transfer, we are a truly independent third party that can help you find the right title insurance to meet your needs.

Because we are not associated with your bank, real estate agent, or lender in any way, we do not have any conflicts of interest. That means that our only goal is to help you find the right title insurance to meet your needs at a price you can afford. We have the training, experience, and connections to help you with this process, so contact us today to speak to our team, and let us help you find title insurance in Forest County!
