In order to become licensed as a Texas title insurance agent (or add a county to an existing license) the Texas Department of Insurance requires a copy of the fully executed title plant subscription agreement and an Abstract Plant Information form for each county. The Department uses the Abstract Plant Information to determine if the title plant (what the Department calls an "abstract plant") complies with the Department's definition for a title plant, as set forth in Procedural Rule 12 ("P-12").
Title Data pre-populates that portion of the Abstract Plant Information form which describes the title plant, including current plant date. All Title Data's customer has to do before submitting the form to the Texas Department of Insurance is add the name and address of the title agency to the top of the form, sign the form and, have the underwriter sign the form.
To request a partially completed Abstract Plant Information form, please click below. The form or forms will normally be furnished to you, by e-mail, within a few hours.
