At Stewart Title, our team has extensive experience in the legal industry and takes great pride in understanding the risks and exposure that our customers face and tailoring solutions to overcome these risks.
Keeping Legal Professionals at the Forefront
Our unwavering philosophy is that the role of the title insurer should be to underwrite risk, allowing the professionals to do what they do best. We believe that conveyancing professionals such as lawyers, conveyancers and settlement agents are most familiar with the complexities of each real estate transaction and are in the best position to prepare documents, advise clients and represent their interests.
Stewart Title Limited does not support programs that reduce or eliminate the professional’s role in the transaction.
Strong Underwriting Ability
When you obtain a title insurance policy from Stewart Title Limited, you receive peace of mind that your real estate investment is backed by a company with real financial strength. Our proven commitment to maintaining financial strength indicates that Stewart Title Limited will be there for our clients today and in the years to come.
Our parent, Stewart Title Guaranty Company, has one of the largest policyholders’ surpluses in the industry. This amount determines the liability an insurer can take on and the number of policies that can be issued. Our financial strength is also affirmed by the ratings our company has received from independent and leading financial rating firms*.
