New England Land Title Association Adopts the Principles of Fair Conduct

June 26, 2008

New England Land Title Association, encompassing Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, have adopted the Principles of Fair Conduct. These six states join twenty-eight other states, totaling over half of the land in the continental United States, who approved the principles including: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington State.

The Principles of Fair Conduct are a part of ALTA's Title Industry Consumer Initiative - a multi-faceted strategy for improving oversight of the industry and educating and protecting consumers. These state affiliates will inform their members through newsletters and meetings to help spread the word about the Initiative and Principles of Fair Conduct and encourage members to adopt them in their own title companies.
