The American Land Title Association, founded in 1907, is the national trade association representing title insurance companies, title and settlement agents, independent abstracters, title searchers, and real estate attorneys. With offices throughout the United States, members conduct title searches, examinations, closings, and issue title insurance that protects real property owners and mortgage lenders against losses from defects in titles.

These best practices are voluntary and designed to help Pioneer Title Company educate consumers and clients on Pioneer Title’s professionalism and best practices to ensure a positive and compliant real estate settlement experience.
