At First American Title Company, we recognize Lenders are under intense scrutiny by regulators for the acts of third-party service providers. As a Title and Escrow Agent, we are a key, high-profile, service provider for our Lender clients. We produce title assurance and insurance products and provide settlement services that enable you to make loans. Additionally, we handle millions of dollars in loan funds and are given access to your customers’ non-public personal information. We also interface directly, on your behalf, with your customers and other service providers. We take our role in the real estate transaction and our obligations to our clients seriously.
First American Title Company is committed to exceeding guidelines for compliance and business practices as set by the American Land Title Association, our underwriters, our regulators, and our business partners. We have dedicated resources to design and implement policies and procedures to ensure our compliance with your regulatory needs and to train our team. We are not only committed to adhering to the highest standards of business practices, but to also helping our Lender clients meet the challenge of complying with existing and future regulatory requirements.
Our goal is for our clients to have confidence in us and peace of mind. To accomplish this, we have adopted policies and procedures designed to protect the integrity of each transaction. We have a dedicated Legal and Compliance Team responsible for training and auditing to these standards.
If there is anything you believe our Company can do in addition to these Best Practices or if you have questions, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us at CFPB@titlefc.com.
