    These days, everyone is trying to get into the title insurance business. Real estate agents; mortgage lenders; insurance companies & lawyers all have interests in the various insurers. Banks are trying to get into the business too. When someone suggests their company, ask:

    Why are they recommending that particular company;

    What role they play (if any) in reviewing the chain of title and/or underwriting process; and

    What (if anything) will they receive in return for steering your business to the proposed insurer?
