Ticor Business Update – COVID-19

To our clients,

At Ticor Title, our people and clients are our top priority and we are committed to doing what we need to do to protect them while helping stop the spread of COVID-19. As a result, we continue to closely follow guidance issued by the CDC, WHO, and other state agencies as it relates to safety protocols and virus protection. With this in mind, we have implemented alternative work arrangements across all of our offices and have approved as many of our people as possible in each office to work remotely.

We have spent time both testing and expanding our remote working capabilities to minimize any disruption of the service levels you have come to expect. However, in this unprecedented time, we ask for your patience as we diligently work to meet these new challenges and the needs of our people, our clients, and our communities.

During these alternative work arrangements, we also wanted to make sure that you are aware of the following practices that are in place in our title operations to help continue closing real estate transactions.

  • Earnest Money Deposits: You can send Earnest Money Deposits via wire transfers. As with all wires, remember that wire fraud is real and home buyers and sellers are the biggest targets. As a best practice, confirm all wiring instructions, including specific banking information, by phone before transferring funds. Use the phone number for your closing agent/escrow officer provided on their website or from a business card. Never rely on phone numbers in email communications.
  • Virtual Signings and eSign Tools (where and when available): To eliminate or significantly reduce reliance on in-person closing and signings, Virtual Signings and eSign tools are available for customers to sign eligible documents from their homes.
  • Video Consultations: Our operations have access to video conference technology to facilitate consultations with customers to review documents and answer questions prior to or as part of the closing process.
  • Efficient Closings: Our goal is to streamline the amount of time you are in our offices or required for closings. We are customizing solutions for each office to accommodate customer needs.
  • eRecording: At this time, the majority of county recorder offices appear to be functioning, or are only closed to the public, so that documents continue to be recorded, and online records remain searchable and up-to-date. However, that is not true in all cases. As a result, we are providing local managers with authority, where appropriate, to issue policies providing coverage during the gap created by recording or posting delays created by government office closures.

We are in a rapidly changing environment as a result of COVID-19, and the impacts on our national and local communities are changing hourly, including the closing of some local government recording offices. At this time, the majority of these offices appear to be functioning, or are only closed to the public, so that documents continue to be recorded, and online records remain searchable and up-to-date. We are closely monitoring this pandemic situation, and you are encouraged to contact our office with any concerns or questions related to your transactions.

Safeguarding the health and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority.

Ticor Title is open for business and staff are here to help our clients/customers but by appointment only. With the current health concerns regarding COVID-19, we ask that you call to set appointment if you are coming into our office.

Thank you,

Ticor Tech Tip – Download our Informational Guide to Reading the Title Commitment

A Title Commitment (also known as a Preliminary Report in some areas) is a dated formal report that sets out in detail the conditions under which a policy of title insurance would be issued on a particular parcel of land. The report reflects the matters which would be shown as exceptions in a policy of the title insurance so that the parties to the transaction will be aware of any of those matters of record that may need to be cleared prior to the closing of the transaction. This report is issued before the title policy—hence the name Title Commitment.

We have created a guide to assist in how to identify and understand the following…


The estate or interest covered.
The record owner of the estate or interest.
A legal description of the parcel of land covered.
Requirements and Notes.
The easements, liens, encumbrances and other matters which affect the title to the land at the date and time of the report.
