We talk a lot about the American Land Title Association (ALTA) – particularly in terms of the various title insurance endorsements that they offer. But many people don’t know what ALTA is or what they do, despite their important role in the title insurance industry. In this article, we are going to talk about ALTA and their role in commercial title transactions.
The American Land Title Association
The American Land Title Association (ALTA for short) is a trade association that represents the title insurance industry. The Association was formed in 1907 and has been providing services to the title insurance industry since then. The primary mission of ALTA is to protect consumers and improve industry oversight. To that end, ALTA members all follow a code of conduct that highlights the importance of ethical business practices and compliance.
ALTA also develops endorsement forms used predominantly by title insurers across the country. We utilize many of these ALTA endorsements when working with clients. Learn more about specific ALTA forms in our previous articles:
