To help explain the value of the title insurance industry, ALTA is collecting information on the many curative efforts agents and abstracters perform every day to keep the public record in order and assist in the efficient transfer of real estate.

To provide this information, please complete the 2011 Title Agent and Abstracter Survey. It will take approximately one hour to complete.

If you have not already filled out the survey by email, please complete the survey online or fax a copy directly to Demotech Inc. at 614-761-0906 by no later than Feb. 15, 2011.

If you have already completed the survey through the previous online offering, thank you, please do not re-submit your information.

To report useful information back to you, it is necessary to ask for sensitive data. To guarantee the anonymity of your response, ALTA has contracted with Demotech, an independent research organization, to receive and tabulate the results. All responses will be reported as averages or ratios, broken out by region, and size and scope of operations. You may respond in complete confidence that your individual response will remain anonymous.

By participating in the survey and providing your contact information, you will receive a copy of the results and be able to benchmark your operations against industry-wide averages and ratios. You will be able to compare your operations with companies similar to yours in size and scope.

Only participants will receive a free copy of the results. The survey results will be available for sale to companies that do not participate.
