Landtech changes

In Florida, the ridiculous $3.28 title policy surcharge has finally expired. This was a policy put into place by the State of Florida in concert with title insurance underwriters. On the same day in 2012, Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund, Inc., KEL Title Insurance and National Title Insurance were ordered not to issue any more title policies in Florida. This $3.28 surcharge was ordered in 2013 to cover the shortfall from those failures and every time a title policy was issued, this surcharge was collected from the parties and remitted to the agent’s title underwriter who would then remit it to the state. In the case of a simultaneous issue, only one surcharge would be collected total. If you have automated entry of this charge set up in your Landtech program, the latest version of Landtech will look at the Settlement Date and if it is beyond 12/31/2016, it will not let you check the surcharge check-box.
