The American Land Title Association, founded in 1907, is the national trade association representing more than 6,400 title insurance companies, title and settlement agents, independent abstracters, title searchers and real estate attorneys. ALTA’s headquarters is located in Washington, D.C. ALTA founded the Coalition to Stop Real Estate Wire Fraud in 2019.
