What is the ALTA Registry?
The Title & Settlement Agent, LLC (“ALTA Registry”) is a tool to help our industry more confidently identify title insurance companies, underwriter direct offices, and real estate attorneys. Underwriter confirmation or attorney licensing information (state and number) is required for all ALTA Registry listings. Basic company information is available to the public; information about confirmed underwriter relationships is available to users who log in and agree to terms of service.Learn More
For Title Agents
Title insurance companies issuing title policies can submit their listing request and maintain their records in the ALTA Registry Management System. Records must be confirmed by at least one underwriter before listing in the ALTA Registry and must be reviewed and updated annually.Learn More
For Real Estate Attorneys
Attorneys who perform settlement services, but who may not issue title insurance policies can be listed in the ALTA Registry. In order to be included, attorneys can submit their listing request and maintain their records in the ALTA Registry Management System. Records are confirmed using self-reported attorney licensing information (state and number). Registry records must be reviewed and updated annually.Learn More
