Best Answer

There are many aspect of title insurance:

1. Sales

2. Processing

3. Examination/Reading

4. Searching/Abstracting

5. Closing/Settlement

6. Clearances and Conveyances

You need to decide what areas you are most qualified in based on education and practical experience. Design your resume and then go knock on title agency, real estate, mortgage and attorney doors. Simply obtaining a license, for any profession, doesn't mean you are automatically have the skills and knowledge required to do the job. You may want to find a mentor, take additional courses and network with other producers, etc. to gain experience and knowledge in order to become the "resident expert."

What is a NJ resident title producers license?

In NJ you must have a title insurance producer's license in order to effect or sell title insurance. A "resident" producer's license is for someone residing (a resident) in the state of New Jersey. A "foreign" producer's license would be someone living outside of NJ, but effecting or selling title insurance. A licensed title producer can: perform title examinations, prepare title commitments/binders, give title insurance quotes, sell title insurance products/services, perform real estate closings/settlements and issue title insurance policies. Anyone receiving title insurance commissions must be licensed, including attorneys. A non-licensed person working in a title agency may perform administrative acts only that do not involve the above, which are considered "effecting and selling" title insurance. A resident producer is licensed bi-annually and required to take Continuing Education during each licensing period.

Can you sell title insurance using the license of the underwriting company or must you have your own?

No, a Title Agency or individual producer cannot use an Underwriter's authority to sell title insurance unless that agency or individual producer is an employee of the Underwriter and the Underwriter also acts as an agency in the state it is doing business in. 1. A Title Insurance AGENT is the business who acts in behalf of an Underwriter. 2. A Title Insurance COMPANY/UNDERWRITER is the company who issues title insurance. Example: John Doe decided to open a Title Agency, but in order to do that, he must sign an agency agreement with an Underwriter to act as an agent for that underwriter. Once the agreement is in place and all conditions of the agreement have been met, John Doe may now go solicit business for that Underwriter under his newly created Title Agency. Can he sell title insurance in behalf of the underwriter without being licensed? The answer is yes and no. Some states require that a Title Agency and its principal (primary owner) be licensed specifically for title insurance. Other states have no licensing requirements to operate as a Title Agency. The best 2 resources to find out what your State requires for agency licensing are: 1. Department of Insurance (in your state) 2. Title Insurance Underwriter authorized to do business in your state

What is a title producer regarding a notary?

A NOTARY PUBLIC is a public officer who attests or certifies writings (as a deed or mortgage) to make them authentic and takes affidavits, depositions, and protests of negotiable paper. The state you reside can issue you a Notary Public commission. In some states, the County or Parish you live in issues a Notary Commission instead of it being state-issued. A TITLE PRODUCER is a licensed title insurance producer who has completed a title insurance pre-licensing course (typically a 48-60 hour course) and has passed the school examination, a state examination and paid licensing fees to the State DOBI or DOI. In many states a Title Producer is also required to complete Continuing Education hours during each licensing period in order to maintain their license in addition to paying the renewal fees when they come due. The terms are NOT interchangeable. Each is a separate and distinct designation or license. However, can a notary be a licensed title producer and visa versa, yes, ONLY if they have complied with both of the above requirements. In some states, ONLY a Title Producer who is also a Notary Public or an attorney may acknowledge/seal mortgage loans and deeds for a title agency. In other states, a Notary Public can acknowlege/seal mortgage loans and deeds for a title agency without being a Title Producer. In other states, only an Attorney can acknowledge/seal mortgage loans and deeds for a title agency, regardless of whether they are also a licensed title producer and notary public. Additionally, in some states an Attorney is considered an "Officer of the Courts" and does not need to be an Notary Public in order to acknowledge Deeds, Mortgages, etc.
