Great American Adopts ALTA Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices

January 03, 2015

Spring, Texas  – In late 2013 Great American Title Company approved the adoption and implementation of the American Land Title Association’s ALTA Title Insurance and Settlement Company Best Practices.  In 2014 Great American engaged Spacelutions, LLC, a web design company, to assist in the construction of an informative Consumer Financial Protection Bureau internet section for its lender customers and consumers on its Great American Title website  An intranet web training site for GATCO’s employees was also designed and constructed.  The interactive intranet site allows GATCO employees, by job classification, to acquire the necessary training to be approved, vetted and certified to handle real estate transactions governed by the CFPB.

On January 2, 2015, Tom E. Blackwell, President of Great American Title Company, announced the deployment of both new sites.  “The Lender/Consumer CFPB site can be found on the Home Page of our website under the tab “CFPB”.”  “All of our employees now have access through our intranet site to obtain the training necessary to be certified and vetted ready for the new consumer regulations.”  Tom indicated that all employees will complete their CFPB training by February 28, 2015.

Lenders and Consumers needing additional information about the intranet site may email the company at
