North American Title Company 
The keystone to a smooth transaction for our real estate customers


The goal and aim of the new Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure is to bring more transparency to the real estate process for the benefit and safety of the consumer. North American Title is committed to making sure that your clients are well cared for and educated throughout the home buying and selling process. To that end, we encourage you to download our Quick Guide for Real Estate Agents or our Reference Brochure for Real Estate Agents to assist you in preparing for the approaching changeover to the new forms.

In addition, as the facilitator of the real estate transaction, North American Title agents, escrow officers and closers are dedicated to being a valued and knowledgeable resource for you, from the moment a title order is open until the transaction is closed. Our training and expertise with the new forms will help smooth the transaction process, as we work through the intricacies of the new forms with you and your clients.

As your home buyers and sellers enter into the real estate transaction, they will have many questions and concerns. In recent months, we have created a series of helpful videos as well as Understanding the New Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure, a 12-page brochure that  explains the new forms in detail.

At North American Title, we feel that education is critical in the coming months. This is true for every professional who touches the real estate transaction. As real estate agents, in addition to learning the intricacies of the new forms, it is important for you to understand about the new Qualified Mortgage rules. This knowledge will help you understand the challenges a buyer will now face in qualifying for a mortgage loan, making you a more valuable resource for your clients.
