Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC), headquartered Palm Harbor, Florida, is the United States largest provider of residential title documenting and research. The company offers expert research, document auditing, and document processing to the residential mortgage industry.
In 2014 Nationwide Title Clearing created a new website in order to address title defects which can result in wrongful foreclosures for innocent homeowners. Usually, these occur when someone legally claims that they own a property that is actually owned by someone else. To address this issue the company started offering online reports that will stop title defects before they result in serious harm. The four easily accessible reports that can now be accessed online includes Assignment Verification Report Services, Current Owner Reports, Tax Status Reports, and Tax Status (Plus) Reports. NTC has simplified the way that property reports are secured and the increased the accuracy of the reports as the company obtains data from multiple sources that are looked over via automation with human verification.
One of the most important documents that the company provides is the Assignment Verification Report.
