The Regulatory Economics of Title Insurance
Note: summary text provided by external source.
Title insurance is central to the health of the home mortgage market and the commerical real estate business, and its regulation has a profound impact on the prices that consumers pay for title insurance and the kinds of coverages that are available. Dr. Lipshutz provides a concise but comprehensive overview of the key economic policy issues that arise in regulating this small but critical segment of the insurance industry. This is the first book to examine title insurance from a primarily economic viewpoint and contains much information on the operations of the industry that is available nowhere else. The book is particularly timely because title insurance regulation is currently under intensive study by a number of state insurance departments and by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
