ClearEdge Title is closely monitoring Hurricane Ian. As conditions warrant, we will make necessary adjustments to our working hours with the primary concern being the safety of our employees and their families. The path of the storm is highly unpredictable and may change in the coming days.

We will stay in close communication with our clients and staff and will keep you updated with any developments via our website and our social media channels. We will continue to monitor the weather updates closely.
If you are in an area affected by the storm, we urge you to plan carefully and monitor updates from county and state emergency management officials. Stay safe. #hurricaneian #stayinformed #staysafe

ClearEdge Title celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, recognizing the significant contributions Hispanic and Latinx people have made to American culture and industry. Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 each year, a time to reflect upon the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

The observation began as Hispanic Heritage Week in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. #clearedge #hispanicheritagemonth

It’s important to note that all states and their respective counties handle title insurance differently. Even in places where the premium rates are set by the state insurance department, insurers may set additional fees that you can compare or negotiate. At ClearEdge Title we believe in transparency! We’re happy to provide a free quote for any pending transactions you may have. Let’s connect today! #clearedge #titleandescrow

The federal holiday of #Juneteenth marks the day when Union Army soldiers led by Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. This occurred more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation which declared “that all persons held as slaves” within the rebellious states “are, and henceforward shall be free.” This event freed over 250,000 slaves still held in bondage in Texas. Enslavers throughout the South didn’t recognize the Emancipation Proclamation until Union Army soldiers came to enforce the order. #juneteenthcelebration

Black History Month is an annual recognition in February of the history, achievements, and influence of the Black community in the United States. The origins of Black History Month can be traced back to 1915 when the historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by Black Americans and other peoples of African descent. Known today as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

To celebrate Black History Month, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is offering a wide array of virtual programs for all ages that you can check out here! https://lnkd.in/dxxGxRCv #BlackHistoryMonth

ClearEdge Title has partnered with Stewart Title to deliver an automated title underwriting platform that delivers search results in seconds. You can reduce production time on approximately half of refi transactions. We can provide our customers with an expedited process which means they can make refinance title loan decisions more quickly. Stewart Accelerate leverages traditional and non-traditional data sources to accelerate and, in many cases, eliminate, the title search process. Even when title searches can’t be eliminated, the output report reduces the time and cost for curative processing by reconciling property and consumer personal information to minimize the number of curative actions.

Powered by advances in technology, the platform leverages and automates title processing best practices with traditional, non-traditional, real property and title data sources to expedite the speed, quality and accuracy of results.

 Stewart Accelerate:

Eliminates the need for Property Index and/or General Index plant/abstractor search for qualified transactions

Reduces risk by reconciling liens and encumbrances against additional data source

Gives curative information on mortgage servicer and existing account numbers

Uses MERS and credit data, which allows for a systematic process to clear closed mortgages that are unreleased in public records

Provides an instant predictive decision on the complexity of the transaction

Provides cost saving results in seconds, eliminating time-intensive traditional search, examination and curative practices. Files requiring traditional practices are provided a curative worksheet to expedite the process

Provides indemnification for losses based on the search information provided in the report

How it works

The title order is delivered via integration, then Stewart Accelerate determines whether all data exists for processing. Stewart Accelerate will pull property data, consumer data, and, in some cases, document copies. The platform then instantaneously analyzes all data based on rules set leveraging Stewart’s underwriting guidelines overlay. A results report indicates whether a title search can be bypassed or if limited curative or full search is required. The final Stewart Accelerate decision can be delivered immediately via PDF. Documents can be pulled and delivered in select markets, and commitment can be delivered within a few hours following a decision, where documents are available online.
