Commercial Products for Lending Professionals

Unsurpassed Commercial Title Insurance

Stewart Title’s Commercial Loan Policy insures the priority and enforceability of the mortgage and provides protection to the lender if they suffer a loss as a result of a covered risk. 


For a one-time premium, title insurance coverage eliminates closing delays by reducing due diligence searches and insuring over matters such as defects, encroachments or title problems that might otherwise stand in the way of completing a purchase or mortgage transaction.  Coverage is valid for the entire time the mortgage is registered.

Knowledgeable Support for All Your Transactions


Underwriting Excellence

Our team of underwriters specializes in processing transactions that require custom underwriting and unique risk analysis. We have the knowledge and ingenuity to provide the best security, coverage and service available for even the most complex transactions.


Custom Endorsements

Endorsements on a title insurance policy are one of the primary elements that supplement coverage and enhance the value of a title insurance policy. Policy endorsements can be tailored to suit even the most complex situations.


Registration Gap Coverage

Title insurance protects against loss from intervening registrations taking place between the closing date and the date the insured instrument is registered. Gap coverage is essential where acquisitions or financing take place in several provinces concurrently or where there are inherent delays in the provincial registration system.


Cross-Border Transactions

It takes experience, responsiveness and dedication to complete all aspects of a cross-border transaction. From selecting the appropriate coverage to tying in loan policies for multiple sites, we have the resources to understand the nature of your transaction and how best to protect it.

For lenders looking to trade or securitize their residential and commercial mortgage portfolios on the world market, title insurance can provide standardized protection and is recognized worldwide.

REITS have unique title insurance requirements for which we offer a custom-designed policy for both purchase and mortgage transactions.
