Iowa Land Title Association Adopts the Principles of Fair Conduct

June 3, 2008

The Iowa Land Title Association member attendees voted unanimously to adopt the ALTA Principals of Fair Conduct at their Annual Convention Business Meeting on May 5, 2008. Iowa joins twenty-seven other states, totaling over half of the land in the continental United States, who approved the principles including: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington State.

The Principles of Fair Conduct are a part of ALTA's Title Industry Consumer Initiative - a multi-faceted strategy for improving oversight of the industry and educating and protecting consumers. These state affiliates will inform their members through newsletters and meetings to help spread the word about the Initiative and Principles of Fair Conduct and encourage members to adopt them in their own title companies.
