Choice Title Receives Best Practices Certification With Attestation Reporting Through HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program

January 5, 2016

Choice Title Co., which serves clients in the North Georgia and the Chattanooga, Tenn., area, was recently recognized as being compliant with ALTA’s Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices.

Choice Title Company’s compliance testing and attestation reporting was conducted by the independent accounting firm of HA&W through its ComplianceSuccess Program. The program delivers third-party assurance using CPA professional standards.

“During the earliest conversations regarding compliance with ALTA Best Practices, we recognized its importance to our future business and lender relationships,” said Perry Underwood, CEO at Choice Title. “We knew we wanted to partner with a CPA firm. After doing our research, we chose HA&W to perform our testing and reporting because they’re credible, follow the strongest professional standards and would provide us and our lenders with a higher level of assurance than others in the market today.”

The compliance process enabled Choice Title to strengthen its policies and procedures and develop a more systemized approach to client service, an approach that has created added efficiencies for the company’s clients.

“It was the foresight of the leadership team, combined with the thoroughness of the operational team at Choice Title Company, that enabled their success throughout the compliance process,” said Lee Fields, managing director of HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program. “They understood the importance of beginning the compliance process early and the value that an ALTA Best Practices certification with attestation reporting would bring to their lenders and clients.”
