He says, "In Indiana it is custom for the Seller to pay for the Buyer's title insurance policy. Indiana has a statute that is much more restrictive than Section 9 of RESPA. Under Indiana law, the seller and the lender have no say over the title agent the buyer picks to close the transaction, or to make the selection of a title agent or an insurer a condition of the sale or the mortgage. The seller and lender only have a right to veto the insurer (not the agent) selected by the buyer."
