SNEERINGER MONAHAN PROVOST REDGRAVE TITLE AGENCY EARNS ALTA BEST PRACTICES CERTIFICATION
ALBANY, N.Y. (January 30, 2017) — Sneeringer Monahan Provost Redgrave Title Agency Inc. (SMPR), one of the Capital Region’s leading title insurance providers, recently joined a select list of title agencies located throughout the country to achieve compliance with title industry best practices standards set forth by the American Land Title Association (ALTA).
“By demonstrating that we are in compliance with the ALTA Best Practices Framework, SMPR is able to show its commitment to operating within the highest standards of quality in every aspect of our business,” said SMPR COO Melissa Clement. “This means our clients are working with a company that has taken proven measures to protect their information, get their documents recorded and engage in sound business practices.”
“We are also in a stronger position to maintain relationships with consumers, real estate professionals and lenders and able to establish new relationships. The certification — along with more than 50 years in the title business — provides piece of mind,” added SMPR President Robert S. Sneeringer.
With offices in Albany, Ballston Spa and Hudson, SMPR earned its certification through the ComplianceSuccess® Program run by certified public accounting firm Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP (HA&W). The program, developed in partnership with ALTA, the American Institute of CPAs and the industry’s top title agents, assures consumers, real estate professionals and lenders that a title agent or settlement firm exceeds the highest standards in compliance benchmarking, readiness and reporting.
During the rigorous and in-depth certification process, HA&W performed an extensive examination of all aspects of SMPR’s business, including licensing, escrow accounting procedures, privacy and information security, settlement procedures, title policy production and delivery, professional liability insurance coverage, and consumer satisfaction.
