Rosen Harwood, P.A., dba Guaranty Title, Inc. Earns ALTA Certification

Rosen Harwood, P.A., dba Guaranty Title, Inc. based in Tuscaloosa, recently became certified in accordance with the American Land Title Association’s Best Practices.

National Certified Public Accounting and consulting firm Pershing, Yoakley & Associates (PYA) provided the assessment and certification.

“As part of Guaranty Title’s desire to deliver up to date and qualified service to our clients we are proud to announce that this certification represents one of the first for this area and places us at the forefront for delivering effective closing services.  It is always our goal to remain on the cutting edge of services delivery and this certification is further proof of this dedication” said Foster Arnold, President of Guaranty Title, Inc.

Regulators’ increased demand to protect consumers has forced lenders to adjust their relationships with service providers and be more sensitive to the types of companies they do business with. To help meet this need, ALTA created the Best Practices framework to help members highlight policies and procedures the industry exercises to protect lenders and consumers, while ensuring a positive and compliant real estate settlement experience.

The third pillar of ALTA's Best Practices focuses on data security and the protection of the consumer’s nonpublic information (NPI), in accordance with the mandates of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

“The parties involved in a real estate transaction demand more than just speed and accuracy in their closing experience, they also want the peace of mind of knowing that their personal information is secure with those involved in the transaction,” said Matt Tompkins, Vice President of Guaranty Title, Inc. and President of Rosen Harwood, P.A.  “This certification is evidence of our organization’s dedication to a higher standard of data security.”
