For Home Buyers

East Texas Title Companies provides title insurance for both commercial and residential transactions. Recent legislative changes have shifted the responsibility of choosing a title company to borrowers to make decisions independent of their lenders or realtors.  Because many home buyers are not privy to the ins and outs of title insurance, this page contains home-buyer-specific information, from general to specific. It is our goal to make it as easy as possible for you to choose a title company, so if you have any questions, please contact your local office by clicking on a county above and we will be happy to help.
