Just a reminder that no one may conduct a settlement unless they are appointed with Stewart Title Guaranty Company. In order to appoint an individual you must provide us (via USMail) with a legible copy of the current license. We cannot appoint if an expired license is provided. We no longer require that the license information include a Social Security number.

Until the license is received and processed in our office the individual may not conduct any settlements where Stewart Title Guaranty Company is the underwriter.

Baltimore City Recordings – July 19 and 20, 2007

We have received information from the Land Records Office in Baltimore City asking that any recordings received back in the mail with a recording date of July 19 and 20, 2007, be returned immediately to the clerk's office. A number of these documents were not scanned or indexed into the Land Records Optix System. As a result it may not be possible to reference or copy these documents from their system.
