Best Practices policy safeguards our clients

Federal Title & Escrow Company was one of the first title companies in the country to implement a series of business procedures with the best interest of consumers – homebuyers and sellers – in mind.

The procedures are known as "Best Practices," and consumers, financial institutions, and real estate agents who work with us can rest easy knowing that each settlement is fully compliant with federal and state regulatory requirements.
