""ALTA is publishing these best practices as a benchmark for the mortgage lending and real estate settlement industry,"" said ALTA CEO Michelle Korsmo. ""The best practices are voluntary standards professionals can adopt to protect consumers, promote quality service, provide for ongoing employee training, and meet legal and market requirements.""

The list includes seven ""main"" best practices for title and settlement professionals, including: establishing and maintaining current licenses as required to conduct title insurance and settlement services business; adopting and maintaining a written privacy and information security program to protect non-public personal information; maintaining appropriate professional liability insurance and fidelity coverage; and maintaining procedures for resolving consumer complaints.
