Conestoga Title Names HA&W as Trusted Partner for ALTA Best Practices Compliance

January 21, 2016

Conestoga Title Insurance Co. will offer its title agents cost-effective benchmarking, testing and reporting options to ALTA’s “Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices” through HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program.

The program offers independent third-party attestation using CPA professional standards. HA&W said banks have historically looked to CPA attestation to mitigate business risk, which can be applied to independent title agents to ensure compliance with ALTA Best Practices.

“The road to compliance is a big investment and title agents want confidence that their compliance report will be accepted by their lenders,” said Lee Fields, managing director of HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program.  “Conestoga agents can be rest assured that their attestation report from HA&W will be accepted by their lenders, providing a high level of assurance. 

Conestoga Title, which has provided title insurance since 1973, is licensed to do business in 14 states and is concentrated on growing its attorney and title agent network in the territories of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey and Delaware.

”As an established name in the title industry, Conestoga sought third-party compliance partners that too have a long history of providing high-quality, personalized service to clients,” said John Nikolaus, president of Conestoga Title. “HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program offers our clients some of the most sophisticated and effective tools available today to ensure compliance with ALTA Best Practices.”
