AM Trust Requires Agents to Use ALTA Short Form Policy

AM Trust recently requested that agents only issue the ALTA Short Form Policy when insuring one of their transactions.  In the event you have never used the Short Form Policy, below is further information regarding the form:

  • The Schedule A of the Commitment should indicate your intention to issue the ALTA Short Form Policy.
  • The premium charge is the same for the Short Form Policy as is with the standard Long Form Policy; however, the Short Form includes the 100 and 300 endorsements. To cover the cost of those endorsements, there is an additional $100 fee, which can be added to the premium line of the HUD.
  • If additional endorsements are required, the charge for those remains the same as if issuing a Long Form Policy.
  • The jacket and schedules are different.  The prefix for the Short Form Policy Jacket is MXSP - click here for a sample Jacket and click here for a sample Schedule.  To obtain the Jacket for your agency, please do so through our ezJacket system.
  • Note - the Short Form Jacket is only two pages. The second page can be used to print the Schedule. The Schedule is only one page unless an Addendum is needed.  Click here for a sample Addendum. The Schedule and Addendum are available with all the software packages.

Should you have any questions, please contact our underwriting counsel: Paula Mack, Steve Gratman, Sue Swick, or Dwight Edwards.


Please contact Sue Morgan at Old Republic Title with any questions
