Notice of Increase in the Policy Guaranty Fee


The Texas Title Insurance Guaranty Association voted to increase the policy guarantee fee from $1.00 to $5.00

This change will take effect April 1, 2008


The Guaranty Fee will be $5.00 for each owner title policy and $5.00 for each mortgagee title policy collected during the applicable quarter.  In preparation for the new fee, please make the appropriate changes to your closing / collection procedures.


This new fee will be due with the new form on or before August 1, 2008.


Continue to use the old form for the first quarter of this year, which is due on or before May 1, 2008, to include transactions which occurred from January 1, 2008 to March 31, 2008.
