No Split Closings on Cash Deals in Utah, by Inwest Title, a Utah Title Company

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Have you ever been involved in a split purchase transaction where the Buyer and Seller want to close at different title companies in Utah, only to be informed that your cash Buyer has to close with the Seller’s title company?  Is this True? Can they force your Buyer to do this?  Why is this happening?

This issue first arose in 2007 when the Utah Insurance Department issued a bulletin announcing their official position that under the Insurance laws a title company that was only handling the cash side of a purchase was not authorized to conduct an escrow since they would not be issuing a title insurance policy.  For a while after this a few title companies tested the waters claiming the statutory language was ambiguous and elected to close Buyer side cash closings anyway.  Ultimately, these companies were pursued, fined, placed on probation, and ended up losing their battles with the Utah Insurance Department.  Additionally, a few years ago the Division’s position was further strengthened by an amendment to the insurance laws (see 31A-23a-406(1)(c))  that clarified the language stating a title company must issue a policy in order to conduct an escrow.  (There is a minor exception to this rule when a title company is dealing with mobile homes, grazing rights, or water rights.)

Is everyone happy with the result? No, but it is the law and it is unlikely to change.

Potential Solutions for your cash Buyer:

  1. Negotiate in the REPC that the Seller close and purchase title insurance from a title company selected by the Buyer;
  2. Request the Buyer be permitted to do a courtesy signing at the title company of their choice.  (This will mean the Seller’s title company will still prepare all the documents and receive all funds, but the signing can take place elsewhere); or
  3. Close with the Seller’s title company.
