When an order for title insurance is submitted on my behalf, the order will be deemed to include the following assurances:

I have investigated title to the insured land in the manner prescribed by my professional society, excluding, however, those searches not required by Stewart Title Guaranty Company; and in my opinion, in so far as that investigation revealed each named insured has obtained a good and marketable interest in the insured land referred to above. I also confirm the following:

  1. I will comply with any and all requirements of the mortgage lender as set out in its Instructions to Solicitor;
  2. I have disclosed all title matters which would otherwise qualify my opinion on title;
  3. Title will be clear of all Executions, Judgments and Writs;
  4. Taxes will be paid on closing or an undertaking to pay outstanding taxes obtained;
  5. I will advise Stewart Title of any additional registrations or matters affecting title, changes to the status of the property and/or the insured's interest prior to closing. If I become aware of any of these circumstances arising after closing but prior to payment remittance, I will advise Stewart Title immediately;
  6. I will advise Stewart Title of any changes in the Scheduled Closing Date;
  7. I will disclose all exceptions to coverage to the purchaser/mortgagor and mortgagee as applicable;
  8. I will forthwith advise Stewart Title of any changes to my support staff so that corresponding access to STEPS can be removed.
