Title Plants

Title Data's Texas title plants cover the Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio metropolitan areas. Our title plants are of the traditional, "thick plant" variety, built and maintained by reviewing every page of every real property document. They contain more than 450 million records, indexing documents comprising a county's official records, probate documents and civil court suits, the district clerk's civil court suits, and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's cases.

In addition to traditional name and geographically-indexed data, Title Data makes available to its customers county grantor/grantee indexes, central appraisal district appraisal rolls, and the Specially Designated Nationals/Foreign Sanctions Evaders lists. All of this information is available on-line via our proprietary TIMSĀ® platform 24 x 7.

Access to Title Data's records and information is available by subscription. For more information please email Brian Davenport, or call 713.880.2600.

Real Property Documents

While an index to documents filed in a county's real property records begins the title search process, an image of the document is often required to complete a title examination. Title Data has augmented its deep textual databases with digital images of documents filed in a county's official records, map records and condominium records, all linked to the corresponding title plant index record and just a click away from on-screen display or printout. In addition, Title Data's 20,000 + proprietary acreage maps are indexed to their appropriate tract or survey. Today, Title Data's Image Library contains over 860 million images, dating back to 1829.

Court Documents

While an index to documents filed with the probate courts, county civil courts and state district civil and family courts is necessary to alert a user that a court matter may affect title to real property or impact a party's ability to consummate a pending real estate transaction, copies of the case documents are often required to complete a title examination. Title Data has augmented its deep textual databases with digital images of documents filed with many of the probate courts, county civil courts and state district civil and family courts in the counties for which Title Data maintains title plants. This product is called the Court Docket and Document System, or CDDS for short.

Starters (Priors)

Title Data is one of the nation's leaders in loading digital copies of title insurance commitments and policies into its Image Library, fully linked to the corresponding parcel in the geographic portion of the Title Plant. Approximately 4 million commitments and policies are just a click away. Title Data makes a county's digital commitments and policies available to all customers subscribing to that county's Title Plant. The availability of these digital commitments and policies can be a tremendous help to title companies by shortcutting the search and examination process.

Market Share

Each month, Title Data prepares title company market share reports for the Houston, Corpus Christi and San Antonio area counties for which we maintain title plants. Market share reports are posted to the Support section of this website. A customer is able to view and print market share reports for the last 24 months for each Houston, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio area county under subscription. In addition, customers can create customized market share reports, by zip code and on the fly for those areas under subscription.
