Codes

Title Data utilizes codes in its title plant database to identify the title company which created a starter index record, signify the name of a county, and designate what type of document has been posted to the general (name) and property (geographic) indexes. Lists of these codes are available below.

Customer Lists

The Customer Lists available below are intended to help facilitate out-of-county co-ops in the Houston, Corpus Christi and San Antonio markets. Title Data's customers in other markets are not shown, as this information is confidential, at present, for competitive reasons (our Customer Support Department can confirm whether or not a title company is a customer in a given county). Also, certain non-title customers have been omitted at the customer's request (for example, oil & gas exploration companies).

Abstract Plant Information Form

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, for each county, a copy of the fully executed title plant subscription agreement and an Abstract Plant Information form. 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-fills for its customers 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, after Title Data's title plant has been inspected by the title agent's underwriter, have the underwriter sign the form.
