National Title Insurance Company (NTIC or the “company”) was first licensed in Florida in 1936 to provide Title Insurance.
Pursuant to a Consent Order entered July 6, 2009, NTIC was placed in receivership for the purpose of rehabilitation. The Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS) is the court-appointed Receiver of NTIC. NTIC has not written any new policies since May of 2009. The existing Florida policies remain in force. The Receiver has liquidated all known assets and continues to pay claims. Information concerning the company’s current financial condition is available via the Receiver’s Website http://www.myfloridacfo.com/Division/Receiver/Companies/national_
On July 13, 2012, the court Order entered an Order Approving Revised Plan of Rehabilitation and Cancellation of Out of State Policies. The Order cancelled all out of state policies, and established a one year claims filing deadline for the filing of any claims on those policies. The court also instructed the Receiver to hold certain funds in order to pay claims for policyholders in the 3 states (AL, GA & TN) where there were in force policies.
