TIRS State Compliance Guide Information

Would it be helpful to have current updates on state laws, customs and practices relating to the title industry licensing and operating requirements in your state?

The TIRS State Compliance Guides, formerly known as the Title Insurance Regulatory Survey, are the most comprehensive collection of regulatory information and practices of the title industry available. This resource contains state-by-state regulatory and local practice material for entities establishing real estate title and closing operations, and is available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Each state guide has been reviewed by in-state legal editors to ensure the proper legal and operational environment in all jurisdictions. The guides are organized into seven sections: Introduction, Title Insurers, Title Agents, Abstracters, Escrow/Closing Personnel, Market Practices, and Real Estate Practices.
