Stewart Trusted Providers and ESB

When you see these seals, you know you’ve found a trusted provider of real estate settlement services with even more security.


When you do business with an independent agency or attorney agent that has the Trusted Provider seal, you know you’re working with trustworthy people. This seal certifies they’ve been vetted, verified and meets the criteria of Stewart’s ongoing review process and Independent Agency Standards.

And when you see the Trusted Provider seal alongside the Escrow Security Bond (ESB) icon, you can expect even more security. An ESB, underwritten by Lloyd’s of London®, may provide settlement fund recovery as a result of fraudulent activities, including:

  • Computer crime rider
  • Cyber liability – Consumer data security
  • Employee theft coverage
  • Partner/principal theft coverage
  • Embezzlement
  • Payable fraud
  • Receivable fraud
  • Diversion schemes
  • Fictitious write-offs
  • Expense schemes

Bottom line – when you see the Trusted Provider seal and ESB icon lockup, you can rest assured you’re working with an agency or attorney who will protect your funds.

Lenders and consumers can depend on title agencies and attorney agents exhibiting the Stewart Trusted Provider seal to provide them with a quality experience throughout the real estate transaction process consistent with the coverage provided in Stewart’s Closing Protection Letters and Policies of Title Insurance as issued.
