An Advantage for Our Clients

Orleans Title Insurance Agency, L.L.C. (Orleans Title), is Steeg Law’s in-house title insurance agency for Commercial and Residential closings, providing added services for our real estate clients. Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined title examination, underwriting and claims handling experience, improving the efficiency and quality of these transactions, which make for orderly closings for owners, sellers, purchasers, lenders, lessors, and lessees.

Commercial Title Insurance

Orleans Title is an issuing agent of First American Title Insurance Company and Fidelity National Title Insurance Company. Additionally, our attorneys are approved attorneys for Chicago Title Insurance Company. The agency places policies through all three companies, enabling Orleans Title to be a leader in the industry with the experience and financial strength to serve the title insurance needs of our clients.

In addition to providing commercial title insurance for transactions handled through Steeg Law, Orleans Title works with the national commercial services offices of its underwriters, acting as the Louisiana title agent for multi-site/multi-state transactions, including the sale, purchase or refinancing of entire portfolios of commercial properties.

Orleans Title has issued over $1 billion in title insurance policies for the whole spectrum of commercial real estate transactions throughout Louisiana from shopping centers to office buildings and power plants, and multi-family housing developments.

Residential Real Estate Closings

Orleans Title offers a more personal experience for our residential title insurance clients than larger title agencies because of the number and experience of our title examiners. We frequently find title issues overlooked by prior closing agencies and are often able to find creative solutions to solve the title issue in a timely manner. Whether you are purchasing, selling or refinancing a $42,000 lot or a $3,000,000 home, we treat each transaction with the same importance.

Access to Steeg Law’s title and closing attorneys and our full range of high quality title services is an added benefit for our residential title insurance clients. Our notarial secretaries work closely with the title and closing attorneys to ensure that every transaction proceeds to a satisfactory conclusion.
