Stewart Title Co., Houston, has announced the introduction of a Green Title Policy that promises to use electronic means to reduce the amount of paper and other resources consumed by real estate transactions."In a typical real estate transaction, the amount of paper and other resources used is staggering," said Stewart Morris Jr., president of Stewart Title. "Across the industry, depending upon the type of transaction, approximately 460 pieces of paper are generated in a single closing." Mr. Morris said the Green Title Policy will enable customers to order title and escrow services electronically and have the title commitment and closing statement sent electronically. Stewart Title offices will move to meet green certification requirements in various areas, he said. Stewart Title of Colorado - Denver is the first Stewart office to obtain green certification.
