Title Insurance agents and title agencies must obtain a license in the states where they plan to work. Separate licenses may be required for agencies to do business within the state. Some states license business entities and others only license individual agents and producers.
Each individual agent and each business entity must generally obtain different licenses. Residents of a state are often licensed differently than non-residents. Application and title agent and title agency license fees vary depending on the state. Every state requires license renewal every 1-3 years.
