Open Title, Sugar Land

Fort Bend Title is a full service title company that can assist you with open title in Sugar Land, Texas. Once a seller has accepted your offer on a new home, and the earnest check is deposited, we will open title on the property. A title search is performed to view the history, verify the legal owner and determine if any debts exist against the property. We will work to clear any exceptions off the title so the title is clean on closing day. The title company must have several documents in place before the closing can happen including:

  • Signed earnest money contract, with earnest money deposited into escrow
  • Survey
  • Property inspection and/or appraisal, and any other reports required by lender
  • Payoff information from existing lienholders
  • Statements from taxing authorities and homeowners’ associations
  • Proof of homeowner’s insurance
  • Loan documents from lender
  • Proof of down payment, either by wire transfer or cashier’s check
