About Best Practice Consulting Services

Our affiliate, Generes & Associates, assist in all aspects of ALTA Best Practices compliance. Edwin G. Generes, CPA (inactive) has over 45 years of accounting and consulting experience, including over 23 years in the title, settlement and escrow services industry.

  • Manual preparation - Ed has prepared an ALTA Best Practices manual designed for small to medium sized title/settlement practices.  The manual is easily adaptable to virtually any such firm.
  • Procedure implementation - Some procedures “required” by ALTA Best Practices are too resource demanding and cumbersome to be used by smaller businesses.  In most cases, Ed can help design procedures that will fulfill the same goals and objectives as the ALTA procedures but without the cost and inconvenience.  In other cases, Ed can suggest economical outside services to help accomplish those goals.
  • Liaison with certification entity - Best Practices certification can be confusing, time consuming and expensive. Further, should title/settlement agency managers need help in interpreting the Best Practice examiner’s questions and responding satisfactorily, then Ed can assist with this, also. Having a liaison who understands both the title/settlement services business but also the certification process, can simplify and speed up the overall process to a satisfactory conclusion.  Ed Generes can act in the capacity of liaison has assisted numerous companies in getting their certifications quickly and at a reasonable cost.
