Title Data Launches Enhanced Coverage Program

March 21, 2017

Title Data Inc. (TDI) announced its Enhanced Coverage Program, a project to extend further back in time its existing “thick” land title evidence plants for many of the metropolitan Texas counties it serves.

According to Jay Sibley, president and CEO of Title Data Inc. (TDI), the company until recently concentrated on serving the nine-county Southeast Texas market, a region of nearly eight million people with Houston at its epicenter.

“As the Texas title insurance industry began to shift from a local to a statewide model, TDI made the strategic decision to expand the geographic coverage of its title plant database accordingly, launching its Expanded Counties Program January 2011,” Sibley said. “Initially it built a number of traditional, thick title plants which only went back to 1979, the state-mandated minimum.”

TDI’s program now covers 35 metropolitan Texas counties. Thick title plants covering Bell, Brazos and McLennan counties are set to go online midyear. More than 80 percent of the state’s population lives in these 38 counties. 

With its geographic expansion nearing completion, Title Data has launched a project to deliver greater depth in its geographic indices and document image libraries. 

Sibley said the TDI will first add 63 years to its traditional, thick title plant in Williamson County. Title plant data will also be extended back to the early 1900s in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, which includes Collin, Denton, Ellis, Rockwall and Tarrant counties.
