Bank wants us to specify title examination/closing agent and title insurer along with our mortgage pre-qualification app. The bank will kindly provide these if we have no preference - do we have a preference? Any recommendations? This is in Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh NC USA. Application form is due tomorrow, along with this information.

I'm not sure why we have to decide *now*, but either we fill in choices for "Title Examination/Closing Agent" and "Title Insurance" provider, or we check "I have no preference...I authorize the Bank to designate ...provider".
This is First Citizens Bank, FWIW. They seem OK as banks go. We're not sure what town(s) we'll look in at the moment; we currently live in Chapel Hill, but we might consider Hillsborough, Durham, Raleigh, or rural Orange County.
Specific recommendations for these services will be welcome. We don't have a real estate agent at the moment.
