NextAce Corp. made its patented Title EDGE available nationally on its website Sept. 9. Title insurers and others can now access Title EDGE at any time of day to immediately process one or more orders directly from their desktop or mobile device. The information is delivered quickly and, depending on the product type requested, can include a chain of title, GI or name search chain, voluntary and involuntary liens, maps, taxes and relevant document images for residential properties.
The entirely automated platform combines a superset of data from major title plants, non-traditional property data and other sources from across the country. NextAce said it sets itself apart from traditional property searches by fully automating the property search and workflow process to deliver time and cost savings.
“The availability of Title EDGE through our website expands automated search and examination to title agents, underwriters, lenders, attorneys and others who may have the volume to warrant the technology and time investment required to implement this type of automation,” said NextAce Chief Executive Officer Don Cantral. “By accessing the website, they can now leverage our substantial investment and experience gained by processing millions of orders, on a transactional basis. This opens the door to savings and processing efficiencies for operations of all sizes in many areas throughout the country.”
Retail pricing begins at $2.95 for tax reports that are available in more than 600 counties; $29.95 for ownership and equity reports for 1,000-plus counties; and $29.95 to $99.95 for title search packages available in nearly 500 counties. Pricing varies by product type, county and the number of images related to the particular report ordered.
