We Are Your Legal Team

When You Need Answers On Title Insurance, We Have Them

Located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, our law firm — Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC — operates Broad Street Settlement Services, an authorized agent for Fidelity National Title Insurance Company. We are able to meet all your title insurance needs, no matter how big or small. Unlike most title insurance companies, we are able to provide our clients with not only title insurance but also routine legal representation at settlement at no additional charge.

Most real estate agents have established relationships with title insurance companies and receive a financial benefit from sending business to those companies. As a buyer, you should know that you have the legal right to shop around for your title insurance. You also have the right to work with a lawyer who will review your agreement of sale and make sure that your rights are protected.

You may be told that you do not need a lawyer to assist you with a real estate purchase or sale. Skipping this step can have serious, negative consequences. Because buying property is one of the biggest decisions you may ever make, it is critical to take your time and explore all your options with a qualified and experienced lawyer.

Added Benefit Of A Lawyer’s Advice

Insurance rates are essentially similar throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, but all types of insurance are not created equal. The title insurance we provide comes with legal counsel. So, when problems arise at settlement, we can handle them. Title issues, problems with the agreement of sale or contingencies that are not met can be handled quickly and effectively. Title agencies that are not affiliated with experienced lawyers are not always well-equipped to handle these matters.

Most people tend to start the property-buying process by hiring a real estate agent and following that agent’s advice, but you have more options that you may not have considered. Talking with an attorney is a great way to protect your interests.
