query: what if a title company gave a verbal on title insurance but refuses to give written

Well, that's ridiculous.  I'm presuming you are talking about the title insurance commitment which is issued prior to closing.  You are PAYING for this work product and you are entitled to receive a copy for your review prior to closing.

If your title insurance agent is refusing to provide a copy of the title insurance commitment, FIRE THEM and go find a professional title agent who respects you, the consumer - YOU, the one who pays their salary.

If you're in a time pinch and can't afford to lose the time of going to another title agency, then find out who the regulator for title insurance is in your state - probably the Department of Insurance.  Call them and complain.  Perhaps they will call your title agent and educate them on consumer rights.  Good luck and I wish you success.
