1-you have to go through the agent. If you try to cut the agent out(of cource you cant), you my offend the sellers and it may effect your negotations,and second you may offend the agent and the same thing, you may have a hard time in negotiations.
If the sellers are AAA motivated, you could do about anything and the sellers wont care, they just want there home sold. Just the agent will. You really should just go through the agent. Even though they get in the way most of the time.
2-Most title offices will do a pre title search for free,as long as they think they will get your business.
