I would like to welcome you all to our initial publication of Stewart Title's The Massachusetts Focus, our quarterly newsletter. We hope you will find this, and subsequent editions, informative and helpful. Our goal is to keep all of you informed and tuned in to the case law, underwriting issues, and business concerns that affect your conveyancing practice. We also want to keep you apprised of the services and products available to you as a Stewart agent.
You should all be aware that our back title system is available on the Internet. This allows you to search and print back Stewart Title policies at your office. We also have a new service that will allow our agents to issue their own Insured Closing Letters online through a secure Internet site. Please also take advantage of a national discount program that will allow our agents to realize considerable savings on FedEx charges, UPS charges, and other services. Please contact your Stewart Title representative for more details on any of the aforementioned services.
