Avoid using their services at all cost. This company does not communicate and they do not care at all about the buyers when representing the banks on a foreclosure property. They are rude and do not make any effort to make buying a home a good experience. If you can avoid using them I highly recommend doing what ever it takes to stay as far away from these people as possible!
Comments received from an agent:
I really like working with New House Title and appreciate the excellent communication, responsive and pro-active approach to getting lien searches and HOA estoppels quickly and on time, as well as the overall great attitudes and professionalism with which our transactions are being handled. Great big pat on the back! Keep up the great work!
Hire a lawyer if you hear their name.
One of the worst companies I`ve ever had to deal with! Nobody knows what they are doing. They are just keep promising and promising but nothing gets done! They were just emailing with the agent talking about us - the buyer - being the dumb, because we don`t know how foreclosures are working. That`s why I kept asking them about it, but never got a normal answer. Only thing I got "we do our best".. Really?
After 3 months I said enough and hired a lawyer. We closed on the house in 1 week!
If you have no other chance and has to go through these people, hire a lawyer ASAP!
HORRIBLE. If you can get throught to them they never do what they say they are going to. It's a shame companys like this didn't fold in ths crisis.
Beware of Tax Credit on Foreclosure Purchases. They have a neat little trick at New House Title. They will give you the tax credit up to the date you purchase using the Homestead tax rate. But once a house is in foreclosure the county no longer will use that rate so you (the purchaser) are left to pay the adjusted rate for the whole year. Here is my example: The title company gave me approximately $1000 for 261 days they owned it. I got my tax bill and I owe $1250 for 104 days of ownership. The county will tell you take it up with the title company:the title company will blame your buying agent and you as the little guy will be stuck. IF YOU BUY A FORECLOSED HOUSE MAKE SURE THEY CREDIT YOU AT THE TAX RATE WITHOUT HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION.
How (in any economy) are they still in business?!!.
If only there were a way to give only a fraction of a star! We had everything they wanted days in advance, and they weren't ready on the closing date.
They are now still not ready, we have had to file a petition to extend, and they are demanding that we close on Thursday, not a day sooner or later! What did these guys do with Fannie Mae to earn an exclusive contract?!!!
There's no use in complaining to them. They don't care; they have their contract. Complain to Fannie Mae? Yeah, right! Try complaining to the post office about lost mail and you'll have an idea what that's like.
Freakin' government favoritism!!!
This company has very bad service. Delays, delays, delays, delays for s simple cash closing.
I had to send them the SAME stuff 4 times before they realized this.
How can a business like this get title work from Fannie Mae? Something smells fishy.
If I buy another property and am required to use this company, I will CANCEL the sale.
Worst Title Company on Planet Earth.
As a realtor I have had to deal with some horrible title companies but this one definetely tops the list. They try to make you jump through hoops on the day of the closing, loose your documents, and talk to you like they are gods gift to real estate. Its a shame that Fannie Mae deals with them, they shoul shift their business else where. I know I will never work with them if I dont have to.
Complete Incompetence - Stay Away!. Being a broker in the buisness for over 20 years, I have dealt with many title companies. This is the absolute worst. I've had to suffer through many closings with them and they screwed up every single one. One I had to deal with a manager named William. Very rude and does not know crap about real estate closings. Then it got worse when my next transaction I had to deal with a manager named Jeff. Total incompetence! Most recently I had to deal with a manager named Valerie. Where the heck do they find these people? Our office has had to ask them to fix our address 8 times and they still can't get it right so we never get our commission checks until a month after closing. They don't return phone calls or emails, can't spell names correctly, hold onto the recordings for over 6 months before recording. How they are still in businss I have no idea. Stay away! Run! Pay extra money to close somewhere else! Unless you like bad service and complete incompetence!
THe absolute WORST company. I would give this company 0 stars. Affiliated with South Florida Default group.......enough said. Horrible service, unknowledgable, and just a lack of any business skills. DO NOT USE
