Lower costs and faster closings give you a competitive edge for both large and small acquisitions and financings.
LOWER RATES MEANS LOWER COSTS.
OneTitle's rates are up to 25% lower than our competitors. We shattered the myths that title insurance premiums are set by law and that all companies charge the same rates. Acquisition and financing costs are high enough without exorbitant title bills. OneTitle is the answer.
While our major competitors work together and file identical rates, OneTitle’s rates are 10-25% lower and we eliminated most fees. Of course, we offer exactly the same coverage—with even more security, including direct backing by a $1.5 billion A- (excellent) rated reinsurer.
Closing the deal quickly and smoothly is key. We get it. That’s why we built OneTitle as the only exclusively-direct title insurer in the United States.
We are not a title agent or abstract company and we don’t force our clients to use middlemen. All of this adds up to one simple fact: when you call OneTitle, you talk directly to decision-makers who resolve complex issues quickly, correctly and proactively.
No other underwriter gives you that kind of access on every transaction. And access means speed, accuracy and efficiency.
We know that your time is valuable and that speed is a competitive advantage, so we resolve issues upfront, meet deadlines and exceed expectations.
Many title agents, on the other hand, have limited in-house expertise and even more limited underwriting authority. When complex title issues arise, they have to ask an underwriter for help or permission, leaving investors, attorneys, and lenders waiting for answers. As a direct-only writer, we give you access to underwriter-level expertise previously available on only large commercial transactions. Our underwriting team has deep experience and has completed over $60 billion of real estate transactions in the past decade.
We designed OneTitle from the ground-up to maximize safety and security for you, eliminating the risks raised when working through middlemen. As the only exclusively-direct, regulated insurance company, OneTitle controls the entire
underwriting process and maintains custody of the escrow funds that you entrust to title agents. This level of control protects your funds, prevents theft of escrow funds and ensures that your transaction documents are recorded promptly.
The result: you and your business are protected from potentially devastating risks.
Furthermore, OneTitle maintains the highest standards for underwriting and utilizes advanced software to safeguard your nonpublic information and prevent fraud. The company is a member of the American Land Title Association and adheres to ALTA best practices.
Financial strength. A $1.5 billion reinsurer rated A-(Excellent) by A.M. Best directly backs each policy over $250,000. In addition, we are private-equity backed with significant financial resources. OneTitle has the financial capacity to take on critical commerical and residential transactions and routinely insures transactions large and small. This gives OneTitle clients dramatically expanded safety and peace of mind.
Our strong, clean balance sheet means no legacy policy liabilities. Moreover, as the sole direct-only title insurer—without any traditional independent title agents—we eliminated the single greatest financial risk: escrow theft by independent agents.
OneTitle is authorized to provide title insurance for all Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA and HUD loans, as well as jumbo, commercial, and other non-conforming loans.
OneTitle National Guaranty Company is licensed and regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services.
OneTitle uses game-changing technology that is decades ahead of our competitors. Our underwriting process minimizes paper. Our servers are SSAE-16 and PCI-DSS compliant, with redundant backup and rapid disaster recovery.
Our advanced, proprietary software gives you encrypted and secure access to all of your files, even after closing. Our system also makes it incredibly easy to see file status in real-time, clear exceptions, and get to the closing table faster and with fewer problems.
Many title agents, on the other hand, still use paper files and outmoded database systems. Agents with these older systems often cannot respond quickly to status requests, and routinely lose track of information or fail to record documents in a timely way. We ensure the highest standards for underwriting, employ and utilize cutting-edge software to protect nonpublic information.
