Essential Information for Agents Delivered at ALTA's Business Strategies Conference

March 31, 2009

Business Strategies Logo
ALTA has assembled a team of underwriters who will divulge the secrets behind a successful business transaction from their position in the marketplace. Underwriters and title agents must be able to work together to achieve their shared business goals. But in today's chaotic marketplace, we often find ourselves concerned exclusively with issues affecting our business. It's important that we foster strong business relationships so we can understand the marketplace from outside of our own perspective.

Senior Executives - including two CEOs - from all four of the major underwriting companies will take the stage and explain what it takes to complete a successful business transaction from their point of view. Their personal insight and years of experience will undoubtedly be an asset as knowledge is shared between the people who know best. Do you have a title industry concern? Submit your title industry concerns to and we'll put the panel up to YOUR questions.

The ALTA RESPA Implementation Taskforce is addressing attendees at the Conference to present its findings, as well as to collect your concerns for ongoing HUD meetings. Attend to hear more about:

  • How to Utilize an Average Charge
  • Where is the Proper Place to Disclose Attorney's Fees
  • What Items Should be Separately Disclosed on the 1100 Series
  • How to Handle Disclosure of Shared Charge
