Data Trace Adds 12 New Title Plants in Texas

April 19, 2016

Data Trace Information Services LLC, a provider of data solutions to the title and settlement services industry, introduced 12 new geographically indexed, P-12 compliant thick title plants in Texas. The title plants are the only title plants in Texas that provide access to both tax and title data, according to Data Trace. The plants cover Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty and Montgomery counties in the Houston area, and Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall and Medina counties in the San Antonio area.

“We are proud to bring to the Houston and San Antonio markets our industry-leading technology and our unparalleled expertise at building the most thorough and advanced title plants in the United States,” said Robert Karraa, president of Data Trace. “These new, comprehensive title plants give title companies that serve these important markets not only the stability and choice they require, but also the confidence that can only come from the industry-leading provider of title plant data and technology.”

Unlike title plants that are indexed only by owners’ names, Data Trace’s geographically indexed title plants post transactional data to a specific piece of land, which eliminates time-consuming searching of common names in densely populated counties. Data Trace’s title plants may be searched with multiple property parameters, including legal descriptions, subdivision names and assessor parcel numbers, which allows for faster research and identification of relevant transactions associated with the property. Access to the Texas title plants is also available via XML for simple and efficient connections to existing title production environments.

“These 12 new title plants expand our coverage in Texas beyond our existing title plants in Armstrong, Bastrop, Collin, Hood, Jefferson, Johnson, McLennan, Oldham, Parker, Potter, Randall, Smith and Somervell counties,” continued Karraa. “The roll-out of these plants adds to the extensive data, documents and advanced searching capabilities available throughout the 512 title plants Data Trace offers nationwide and represents the next step in our aggressive effort to expand our geographic coverage in Texas and beyond.”
