June 20, 2019

Black Knight announced it has made enhancements to its title plant application TitlePoint, which are designed to improve the user experience and expand the number of available data assets for users throughout Florida.

Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties have already undergone these application enhancements. Updates for additional Florida counties are underway and will be completed soon.

Black Knight is focused on continuously enhancing our systems to provide premier products, comprehensive datasets and exceptional service. These advancements come as a direct result of listening to our clients, and we are proud to provide greater efficiency, increased accuracy and a better user experience for our clients in Florida.”

  • Underlying/Overlying Property Associations: Details all underlying and overlying property relationships for parcel context.
  • Recommended Search Option: Offers intelligent retrieval of all applicable title chains based on property type and context/history to ensure relevant results.
  • Traditional Search Option: Retrieves historical title chain based upon property history associations.

  • Updated Results Name Grid: Offers a more efficient and versatile General Index experience.
  • Advanced Name Filter: Enhances General Index filtering tool to more easily evaluate name variations for the parties involved in a transaction.
