Land Title Company of Skagit County, Burlington, Washington and Land Title Company of Island County, Oak Harbor, Washington, have both adopted the ALTA Principles of Fair Conduct. They join a growing list of over 80 companies across the United States that have implemented the Principles of Fair Conduct.

The Principles of Fair Conduct are a part of ALTA's Title Industry Consumer Initiative - a multi-faceted strategy for improving oversight of the industry and educating and protecting consumers. These state affiliates will inform their members through newsletters and meetings to help spread the word about the Initiative and Principles of Fair Conduct and encourage members to adopt them in their own title companies.
