Reissue Rates & Discounts

Counselors Title was founded on providing consumers real savings. While other settlement companies reduce their fees or provide credit offsetting their fees, Counselors aggressively promotes the reissue rate on the title insurance premium potentially providing tremendous savings.

We anticipate finding you a reissue rate. To that end, we will GUARANTEE you the minimum savings below. (A reissue rate may provide for a greater discount.) We will pass on to the Purchaser whichever credit/discount provides for the greater savings.

Purchase Price Counselors Minimum Credit
$200,000 – $399,999 $200.00
$400,000 – $599,999 $300.00
$600,000 – $799,999 $400.00
$800,000 – $999,999 $500.00
$1,000,000 OR Greater $750.00

* Our minimum credit is based upon providing you the greater savings of a reissue rate or the credit, and is only applicable in cases where the issuance of a title insurance policy is required. District of Columbia law prohibits incentives or discounts contingent upon the purchase of non-required insurance. Restrictions may also apply in short sales, foreclosures, and REO sales. Please contact our offices to discuss applicable fees and/or discounts in these specific situations.

Debunking the Myths

Q. Receiving the reissue rate on title insurance will only cost my client time and frustration because it is up to the buyer to obtain the seller’s title insurance policy.

A. False. Counselors Title will do the work for the buyer. We will obtain the information we need in order to ensure the buyer is saving as much money as they can.

Q. Why do other companies not promote the reissue rate?

A. It costs them time and money. Many other companies are unwilling to make the extra effort to save you money because it costs the time to research the potential savings and ultimately generates less revenue for their organization. Furthermore, many title companies are owned by, or in a joint venture relationship with, large Real Estate brokerages and Mortgage companies. These companies must share the title premium with their partner and therefore do not have enough revenue to be viable if they do not charge the full title premium.
