Most of that section applies to companies wanting to write insurance, but I would read it just the same.

You need a license to produce title insurance, of course. Next, you need to find a company that is willing to either provide you with title searches, or buy into the records of another company, which can be very expensive.

Let's start with defining title COMPANY vs title AGENCY. A title company is the actual company underwriting and insuring the title policy. Title companies then have agents who sell and negotiate title products in their behalf (think of it as equal to Allstate (the company) having the local Allstate agent) At this point in time, most title companies are also in the business of selling title products directly and in competition with their agents. However, there are more direct title agencies to obtain title insurance services from at a local level than title companies. So, the answer is yes, title companies can also be SELLING title services and products in addition to underwriting and insuring title insurance policies.
