Maintaining best practices for title insurance and settlement services ensures business manners remain in good standing with the state. The American Land Title Association (ALTA) regulations improve quality and professionalism but also have hefty implications. Acuity breaks down some of the new rules.
Maintain good standing with the state and comply with the regulatory department’s latest registrations and licenses required for your title insurance business. Establish applicable business licenses and maintain appropriate compliance with the requirements of ALTA’s Policy Forms Licensing.
Escrow and trust accounts require written controls and procedures for electronic reconciliation and verification purposes. Appropriate escrow controls will help improve accuracy and meet the legal and consumer regulations required, eliminating the risk of losing client funds. Title and settlement companies may request the services of contractors to segregate trust accounting responsibilities.
