It seems quite frequently, policymakers simply don’t understand the important role the title insurance industry plays in an efficient real estate transaction. To help solve this problem, ALTA has created something to change this dynamic. Spearheaded by ALTA President Mark Winter, the association has launched a Personalized Policymaker Education program, which encourages members to reach out to their U.S. Senator, U.S. Congressman, or state policymakers and regulators to ask them to visit your office to learn what the industry does to protect the real estate transaction. These visits should take about an hour and should include a 30 to 45 minute office tour and a five to 15 minute drop-in on a closing.
