Submitting a Claim

How to File a Title Insurance Claim

All title insurance claim requests should include the following basic information:

  • Statement of claim.  Include a brief, but specific explanation of why you are submitting a title insurance claim request.
  • Property information.  The full property address is required to begin a review of any title insurance claim request.  If a street address is not available, please include the legal description and/or the APN of the property in question. 
  • Claimant contact information.  In order for us to respond to your claim request, please include your name, address, telephone number(s) and email address, if available. 
  • Supporting documentation, including (but not limited to) the following:
    • Copy of the title insurance policy
    • Copy of the final settlement statement (or HUD-1)
    • Copies of additional supporting documentation.  This includes anything you feel supports your title insurance claim request.
