ALTA Governance: Bylaws & Mission

The ALTA Bylaws set out the structure and governance of the American Land Title Association. Article II of the Bylaws sets out the Objects and Purposes of the Association and this remains our mission today:

The objects and purposes of the Association are these:

  • To promote the safe and efficient transfer of ownership of, and interest in, real property within the free enterprise system.
  • To provide information and education to consumers; to those who regulate, supervise, or enact legislation affecting the land title industry; to its members; and to affiliated state, district, territorial, provincial, regional, and international associations.
  • To maintain liaison with users of the products and services provided by its members and with government.
  • To maintain professional standards and ethics.
  • To provide assistance to affiliated associations.

Protect new homeowners with the right title support services like municipal lien searches, tax certificates, lien release tracking, and more.
