1. Title Company = Actual insurance company ie: Underwriter

2. Title Agency = Agent of the Title Company providing title insurance products and escrow/settlement services.

A title COMPANY is highly regulated by state law in any state. Contact the Texas Department of Insurance as follows:

Texas Department of Insurance Title Division (MC 106-2T) P.O. Box 149104 Austin, Texas 78714-9104 Fax: 512-305-7426

To open an AGENCY, you must obtain an Abstracting Plant, which is very costly. The Texas Underwriting Manual can be found at:

The Rate Manual can be found at:

Additionally, contact the Texas DOI for additional licensing requirements:
