Some of you may have noticed that we have been insuring over things these days in a slightly different way with the use of the ALTA 34 Endorsement. It used to be that if we agreed to insure over something, let’s say an old deed of trust, we would simply omit the exception or requirement, as the case may be, from the title binder. Well, times have changed. Our current underwriting guidelines require that we insure over the defect with the ALTA 34 Endorsement. In order to do this, we have to take an exception to the defect, in my example above, an old deed of trust, and then indicate that the matter will be covered with an ALTA 34 Endorsement. To see an example of an ALTA 34 Endorsement, click HERE. The affirmative language, covering the insured from loss or damage associated with the defect, comes from the ALTA 34 Endorsement.
