We are proud to announce that Michigan independent land title agents have formed the Michigan Association of Independent Land Title Agents (MAILTA) in affiliation with the National Association of Independent Land Title Agents (NAILTA).

The newly-formed organization is now taking membership applications from interested parties. If you would like to out more information about MAILTA membership opportunities, please send your email inquiries to info@nailta.org or info@mailta.org and to get in touch with this exciting new group.

Earlier this spring, several independent land title agents met in Grand Rapids, MI to outline the objectives of the new organization. The meetings centered on the need for independent organizations in states like Michigan and touched on the concerns faced within the state and the relationship of local MI issues to federal issues. It was a very positive discussion that led to the result of a new organization.

While MAILTA leadership encourages continued membership in MLTA, it appears now that a separate independent land title agent representation in the state is necessary to protect independent & consumer interests. Having representation at the independent agent level through MAILTA and through MLTA gives important professional perspective and coalition power to the title insurance industry.

MAILTA joins similar organizations in Kentucky (KAILTA), Indiana (IAILTA), Ohio (OAITA), New Jersey (NJAILTA), Arkansas (AAILTA)  and Louisiana (LAILTA) in serving the state needs of independent land title agents.

Membership in NAILTA as an Michigan resident will automatically entitle you to membership in MAILTA and reciprocity will also apply if you join MAILTA (i.e. membership in one affords membership in the other).  For more information on becoming a member of NAILTA and MAILTA, please visit www.nailta.org.
