Major Policy Change Adopted by Most National Title Insurance Agencies

From James J. Conte, Esq., WBA Real Estate Law Committee Chair:

The Real Estate Law Committee and the joint Orphans’ Court/Elder Law Committees want to inform attorneys about the major change in policy adopted by most national title insurance companies. Title insurance agencies have been advised that it is no longer permissible to accept letters from counsel promising that they will see to the filing of the PA Inheritance Tax Return and payment of taxes post-closing.
