Is that also not typical in other places?
In CA, we generally use Grant deeds to transfer the property from seller to buyer. Quit Claim Deeds are typically for non-sale transfers, such as adding a new spouse to the title or moving property into a trust.
On the title insurance, sellers typically pay for that, but it can be negotiated. If the property is financed, the buyer will also buy a title insurance policy for the lender's benefit. So yes, there are two title insurance policies on a single financed sale transaction. My understanding is that they have some different terms, although I couldn't tell you what the differences are.
