Old Republic National Title Insurance Company has filed new title insurance premium rates with the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance. These rates are effective October 1, 2012. An important part of these new rates is that agents, will not be allowed to bid projects or deviate from these rates.

The RATE SHEET makes calculating title insurance premiums easy, and allows customers to manage compliance issues by reducing the potential for misinterpretation and miscalculations. The new filed rates are reasonable and realistic to Wisconsin’s market and are significantly lower than the rates filed more than 20 years ago. Wisconsin title insurance industry still boasts some of the lowest rates in the nation and remains committed to providing Wisconsin consumers with high-quality insurance products at affordable rates.
