Companies demonstrate compliance with ALTA Best Practices pillars

November 12, 2015- HA&W, LLP announced today that an additional 12 firms have achieved ALTA Best Practice compliance through HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess® Program.

Each firm’s compliance testing and attestation reporting was conducted by the independent accounting firm of HA&W through its ComplianceSuccess Program. HA&W was the first CPA firm in the nation to perform ALTA Best Practices compliance benchmarking, readiness and reporting services across all seven ALTA Best Practices Pillars. The program delivers independent third-party assurance using CPA professional standards, which provide a high level of confidence to lenders.

HA&W provides multiple compliance offerings, including reviews, examinations, SOC 1 and SOC 2 reports, and ISO 27001 certifications to accommodate specific lender requirements. A review provides a level of assurance best suited for businesses with fewer than 300 residential closings per year and one to two escrow accounts. An examination report provides a level of assurance suitable for businesses with over 300 residential closings per year and three or more escrow accounts.

Firms that have completed a review include:

  • Choice Title Company, Inc.
  • First Commerce Title, Inc.
  • First Guaranty Title, Inc.
  • Muncie & Mattson, P.C. & Plains Title & Escrow, LLC
  • Paulus National Closing Services, Inc.
  • Paulus Title, LLC
  • Raimondi & Associates, LLC
  • Richard C. Murdock Law Office
  • Stephens Millirons, P.C. and Southern Title Services, Inc.
  • Title Group of Tennessee
  • Tuscaloosa Title Company, Inc.
  • Wagon Wheel Title and Escrow, LLC

“There are a number of report types in the market today and much confusion over which report type will best suit one’s business. By choosing a CPA attestation report, these firms have peace of mind that they have received a report that is backed by professional standards and will stand up to the most stringent reporting requirements of their lenders,” said Lee Fields, managing director of HA&W’s ComplianceSuccess Program. “The road to compliance is a big investment. These agents wanted confidence that their testing report will be accepted by their lenders, ensuring that the time, resources and money spent in the process are a solid investment in their future.”
