Title processors are responsible for all aspects of title documentation, preparation, and submission. They research information required to complete the appropriate documentation for a title application; this may involve contacting vendors or clients directly and working with them to obtain needed information or documents. Title processors also examine state and other regulations to ensure applications contain all data and forms required by relevant regulatory agencies. At all times, these professionals must keep accurate records of pending applications and track applications' progress through the approval process. If any conflict arises or additional data or forms are required, the title processor must prepare and submit those documents to ensure the application's timely completion. Title processors also maintain loan or title records, as well as perform clerical and administrative duties such as filing and creating reports for managers and other employees.
Title processors generally work full time in an office setting. The majority of their time is spent examining and gathering appropriate documents, as well as completing and tracking title applications. The remainder of their time is spent updating and maintaining internal records. They may give reports or general assistance to title officers, managers, and other personnel in the course of their duties.
Title processors are generally required to have at least a high school diploma or equivalent. They must have one or more years of experience in the title or loan field. Some title processors may need certification by state agencies. These professionals must be proficient in basic computer software such as the Microsoft Office suite.
