Announcements

Great news! Two new releases of Stewart Rate Calculator are scheduled to deploy in September 2019. These releases include multiple enhancements which you can read below in detail.

Starting September 5th, you'll notice the following changes:

  • Recording Fees and Transfer Taxes: We’ve added some additional error checking behavior alerting users they have not completed important information needed for their property jurisdiction when creating estimates. 
  • All Quotes: When generating estimates, the extra page previously included on the PDF results page has been removed.
  • Washington & Kentucky Sales Tax: The sales tax amount on a refinance transaction now displays on the generated PDF results page.

Starting September 16th, you'll notice the following changes:

  • Title Insurance Premium Section: If a state has a reissue discount available for your transaction, we’ve added a message in the bar to quickly remind you of its availability. Clicking on the message will open the accordion just like the down arrows.
  • Refinance Transactions: You will notice when working a refinance transaction, we’ve removed the buyer’s and seller’s allocation columns making it easier to read; leaving only the totals for the endorsements, title service fees, recording fees and transfer taxes displayed.

Over the past several months, you may have been introduced to Stewart Now (both the mobile app and the website). You may be curious about what each calculator does and where they obtain their data. Each calculator uses the same single source of data, and this latest release of Stewart Rate Calculator will bring us one step closer to our end goal of aligning all rate calculators with the same response, no matter which calculator you use.

You'll find Stewart Rate Calculator's new Net Sheet features in the tools below:

  • Stewart’s Microsites: Your direct operations websites will be automatically updated. You’ll find the new tools at the same place - under Tools and Resources > Calculators > Seller Net Sheet (or Buyer Cost Sheet).

  • Stewart Rate Calculator: StewartRateCalculator.com.

  • Stewart Now Website: When you choose an Absolute Net Sheet from within the Stewart Now Website, you will now experience the new Buyer's/Seller's Net Sheet from Stewart Rate Calculator.

  • Stewart Now Mobile App: Be on the lookout for a new version coming soon.

You may be familiar with other Stewart calculators and are curious about what each calculator does and where they obtain their rate information. Some of these calculators will be enhanced while others will be retired. In the future, all calculators will use the same single source of data, and this latest release of Stewart Rate Calculator brings us one step closer to our end goal of aligning all rate calculators with the same response, no matter which you use.

You'll find Stewart Rate Calculator's new Net Sheet features in the tools below:

  • Stewart Rate Calculator: StewartRateCalculator.com.

  • Your Agency website: You may be impacted in one of two ways:

    • If you have placed a Stewart Rate Calculator link on your website, there’s nothing for you to do! The new calculator will update automatically. As a Stewart Trusted Provider™, we'll also personalize the results with your logo and the Stewart Trusted Provider logo.
    • If you have the older Net Sheet links on your site, we’ll contact you soon about updating the links.
  • Stewart’s Websites: When visiting www.Stewart.com, you have the ability to calculate title premium. Even though this tool doesn’t provide Net Sheet capabilities, it will also benefit from the recent enhancements.
