Mandrien Consulting Group Publishes Definitive National Title Agent Licensing Handbook

Share Article

Mandrien Consulting Group’s licensing handbook, the first of its kind, combines state-by-state guidelines with tips and strategies to help title agents plan and execute an effective, profitable expansion.

Our goal was to create a single reference manual that contains not only the requirements of every state but also the tips and tricks we learned in the trenches, guiding licensure expansions for our clients.”

Management consultancy Mandrien Consulting Group announces the publication of The First Title Agent Licensing Manual: A Practical Guide to State by State Licensing Requirements, which is being sold now to professionals nationwide. This handbook is the only definitive title agency licensing reference text on the market. It was written to be an indispensable resource to all title professionals, whether they are just thinking about license expansion, are maintaining compliance of the national footprint they have already established, or simply need a handy reference guide.

Mandrien Consulting Group’s Director of Corporate Communications Alexander Crompton remarks, “More and more title agencies are considering going national, and they all face the same troubling situation. In order to plan an impactful expansion, they need a great deal of information about licensure and compliance. However, this information is so scattered that agents must spend weeks or months hunting it all down—let alone synthesizing and analyzing it. Our goal was to create a single reference manual that contains not only the requirements of every state but also the tips and tricks we learned in the trenches, guiding licensure expansions for our clients.”

Mandrien was in a unique position to create this innovative text. One of Mandrien Consulting Group’s specialties is effecting smooth, rapid title agent licensing expansions for clients. Their unique “3-Step Plan” allows agencies to go from one state to forty over the course of a month and a half. Now the professionals at Mandrien Consulting Group have leveraged their collective experience to create the most practical, complete text possible. As Mr. Crompton states, “Book-knowledge is indispensible, but every state has idiosyncrasies and pit-falls you won’t learn about on the Secretary of State’s website. More than just a compilation of every relevant law and statute, this handbook is a product of the know-how and wisdom we’ve acquired over the years.”

Mandrien Consulting Group begins the handbook with an introduction to the key concepts in play during the title agent licensing process. Licensing is described with regard to its historical development, and the common threads running through all states’ licensing processes are explained in general terms. The introduction serves to orient the reader to the fundamentals of title agency licensing and to provide a framework through which the reader can understand the specific requirements imposed by individual states.

The handbook then goes on to explain, state by state, the requirements and practical issues involved in acquiring and keeping licensure. Mandrien Consulting Group cites every relevant law and statute following Bluebook specifications for easy referencing and full accountability. Such issues as controlled business considerations, title plant buy-ins, naming restrictions, fee types and amounts, escrow requirements, bond requirements, renewal terms, appointment requirements, and self-reporting are all covered in lucid, easy-to-understand prose. The manual includes a full glossary of terms both general and state-specific. Furthermore, to complement the prose, the handbook includes robust spreadsheets, one for each state. These spreadsheets are perfect for easy reference, and will be ideal for compliance professionals using the book as a quick go-to guide.

Mandrien Consulting Group wrote this one of a kind manual to fill a gap in the literature of the industry. Mr. Crompton states, “We really wrote this with the agent in mind. We thought, ‘What information would our licensing clients want if they were working to achieve national licensure on their own, and how would they want that information presented?’ Then we wrote the handbook around our response to that question. We used clear language and an intuitive layout to facilitate easy use. The information presented is both comprehensive and understandable.”
