Title Alliance was the first in the industry to develop title and settlement joint ventures with real estate and lending professionals in Pennsylvania. With an unparalleled record of over 85 successful joint ventures, Title Alliance has established itself time and time again as the strategic alliance leader in the Title Insurance industry.
Title Alliance, Ltd. was born from Title Abstract Company of Pennsylvania which was founded in 1948. That company later created an underwriting company as well as many other companies that supported and enhanced the operations of the title underwriting company. The management team of Title Alliance wanted to focus exclusively on the business of creating and administering successful RESPA compliant joint-ventured title agencies and has focused in that space solely since 1983. In May 2014, Title Alliance became an ESOP Company.
