Website Questions and Answers

Question: How do I find the Stewart Massachusetts website?

Answer: You already found it. Congratulations!

Question: What can I find on the website that will help me as a Stewart agent?

Answer: You can do all of the following, and more:

  • Order supplies, back titles and insured closing letters.
  • View current bulletins and other important notices that are regularly posted.
  • Get direct links to other valuable sites.
  • Contact any of our staff by email or phone.
  • Find all the ALTA endorsements, as well as other regularly used endorsements.
  • Download various forms and affidavits.
  • View and search all our newsletters.

Question: How do I search the newsletters?

Answer: Do the following:

  • Go to the website and click on Stewart Publications.
  • Click on Archived Newsletters.
  • Scroll to the Search box and enter your query.
  • The newsletter articles containing your query will appear.
  • Open an article and then from the Windows Edit menu, choose Find (on This Page) to find where your query appears in the article.
  • You can copy text from the articles and paste the text into your documents.

Question: Can I view newsletters just the way they’re printed?

Answer: Yes. Do the following:

  • Go to the website and click on Stewart Publications.
  • Click on Archived Newsletters.
  • Scroll beyond the Search box and you’ll see a listing of all the newsletters in reverse (newest to oldest) order. Click on the “view pdf” link to view the full newsletter on your computer screen or, if you want to download the image to your computer, click on the “download” link.
  • You can’t copy from the PDF format, but you’ll notice that all the articles contained in each newsletter are listed below each caption, so that you can open, read and copy from them in HTML format.

Question: How do I fill in the forms on the website?

Answer: Unlike forms on most other underwriters' websites, Stewart's forms can be filled in right on the screen or you can download them to your computer and fill them in later. They are all PDF files but they have active field cells and boxes that permit this editing function.

Question: Can I save the forms that I complete?

Answer: This depends. If you have only Adobe® Reader (the free program you can download from the Internet) you cannot save your changes, but you could print out an extra copy of your document for your records. If you have Adobe® Acrobat you can save your changes.

Question: If I have any questions about the website who do I contact?

Answer: Gary Casaly. You can contact him by email (gcasaly@stewart.com) or phone (800-628-2988 or 617-737-8240). He will be happy to answer your questions or walk you through the site.
