query: who is responsible for sending out the title insurance policy to the buyer

The issuing title agent, attorney or title underwriter is responsible for sending policies to the lender and the buyer. You should have a copy of the title insurance commitment in your hands before you close. Whoever issued the commitment, will issue the policy. Sixty days is a reasonable period to wait after closing without getting worried. After sixty days, make inquiries.

Some attorneys and title agents have bad habits. Some never issue policies. What crooks!

BTW - If you are trying to determine whether the title insurer you are working with is a good guy or a bad guy, ask about the title commitment and when you will receive a copy. The answer to that question is very revealing. It will separate the knowledgeable and dependable from those who are neither.
