Not being a title officer I can't really answer this but perhaps Rene Fabre has some insights, although his focus now may not be so much on title. It may also be a question for a real estate attorney or a CPA to provide the right guidance so the buyer can make a decision

The title officer can not choose or pick deed for a client. They have to decide what is best for them. Neither can realtor as condition for the licensing retaintion.

If you're instructor is teaching you that anyone other than the client picks thier type of deed, time to find a real school.

You might want to call your local title office and or real estate attorney for that question...then again, there is always the instructor if there is one.  Maybe you are an on line class I am thinking with all these odd questions.  

I don't think we have many title officers on AR.

A real estate agent is not and should not be a title officer. The closing company, title company or closing lawyer will take care of all aspects of the title search and closing. The type of deed best for a client, is a question for the lawer. RE agents should not practice law without a license
