Your title insurance underwriter, state insurance commissioner, state banking department and/or your state’s attorney general and now ALTA Best Practices (or some combination of the foregoing) requires that you reconcile your Escrow / Trust accounts on a monthly basis, without fail.

Penalties for failing to do so may include, depending on your state, the loss of a title insurance license and/or law license. Underwriters can and, depending on circumstances, will revoke your title insurance agency or approved attorney status. Failure to timely reconcile will also prevent your Best Practices certification or perhaps loss of certification in the future. 

The monthly reconciliation process can be difficult and time consuming and, you are not making money or advancing your business during this time! FTA is widely recognized for its professional expertise in providing clients with timely and accurate Escrow/Trust account reconciliation reports and doing so in a cost effective and efficient manner.
