RICHMOND, Va., -- United Title Company is now doing business as LandAmerica Title Company. The change became effective on October 1, 2008.

The change is another step in LandAmerica's transformation of its collection of independent businesses into an integrated and unified operating company. Unifying its businesses under the LandAmerica name reflects the company's success in the marketplace and the growing recognition of the LandAmerica brand in Southern California and across the country. LandAmerica is the only real estate transaction services company to have been ranked number one in the mortgage services industry for two years in a row on Fortune's® list of Most Admired Companies.

Margaret Foster, Executive Vice President of LandAmerica operations in Southern California, said, "While United Title's name has changed to LandAmerica Title Company, our commitment to delivering unsurpassed solutions to our valued customers in Southern California and beyond remains unchanged. We continue to pursue our goal of making LandAmerica the premier provider of real estate transaction services."
