ALTA Best Practices 

The American Land Title Association (“ALTA”) created the Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices Framework in 2013. It was designed to address industry concerns about consumer protection regulations as well as the vetting of title insurance agents by mortgage lenders as a result of Federal Government guidance. 


ALTA’s Best Practices Framework outlines the policies and procedures that title insurance agents should exercise to protect lenders and consumers and in order to demonstrate their ability to comply with regulatory and industry standards.
