AllShore Title provides a full range of title and settlement services from offices located throughout the states of Maryland and Delaware. One of the most successful independent title companies in the region, AllShore Title was initially founded to support the real estate practice of Funk & Bolton, P.A., a Mid-Atlantic-based law firm.

The Settlement Process – What’s Involved and How it Works For you, the home buyer, settlement is the day your dream becomes a reality. But settlement is really just the final step in the home buying process – when ownership is transferred from seller to buyer. While the closing itself usually takes just about one hour, getting ready for settlement is a process that may take several weeks. AllShore Title performs a variety of functions prior to the actual closing date, serving as the liaison between you, your lender and the realtor or builders involved in the transaction.

We start by contacting the city or county offices where the property you are buying is located and conduct a search to learn everything about the property’s history. We examine the title to verify that all outstanding liens are satisfied and investigate the property survey to determine if the house is correctly located.
