Recently we talked with our regional manager, Donna, about needing to put in a claim for an error that our Firm made. Donna helped calm me down and instructed me on how to start an online claim. We were surprised by how smoothly and quick the whole process was! The best news was that it was approved, $12,000 paid, through the Transaction Protection Endorsement. Thank you Chicago Title!
A Happy Law Firm
Thank you very much for the prompt response to my fencing permit issue. The money arrived prior to me paying the company, much appreciated.
In addition, I need to take this moment to say that although Shelley and I have endured, to this point, the most disastrous home ownership experience one could imagine, your company has turned out to be our emergency parachute. If not for our title insurance policy we would undoubtedly have been left with the untenable task and expense of pursuing a lawsuit across international borders against the previous homeowners.Yourself as well as all of the other consummate professionals that have toiled on our behalf have earned our most sincere gratitude.

Chicago Title insured a large mortgage secured by commercial condominium units for an important client of our firm. Unfortunately, as a result of fraud, the Borrower went into receivership. During the receivership, a number of priority disputes arose, including the condominium corporation asserting a claim to priority over the insured mortgage for $1.24M of common element arrears despite the fact that the status certificate at closing showed no arrears owing. Chicago Title was put on notice of the potential claim as soon as the priority disputes arose. Upon being out on notice, Chicago Title was responsive and confirmed coverage very quickly. Chicago Title was very supportive of our client's efforts to obtain an Order from the Court to defeat the priority claims and to ensure that the priority of our client's mortgage was protected. While no one ever wants to have an insurance claim, Chicago Title dealt with this difficult situation promptly and professionally and provided the necessary support to obtain a great result for our client. I would happily recommend Chicago Title for that reason.
Our office submitted a claim for supplementary taxes which the previous owner refused to pay and we were very impressed with the ease and speed at which our client’s claim was processed.

I am one of your Title Insurance policyholders for my principal residence in Markham, Ontario.
Unfortunately, I had violations served on my property and needed to make a claim to rectify the issue. It being my first time in such a situation, I was under immense stress and was not aware of the process.
Fortunately, Pierre was assigned on the claim and I could not be more happy with the way he handled it. He is immensely calm and listens to the issues and client needs. I never expected such wonderful customer service from an Insurance Company and wanted to take this opportunity to thank Pierre and Chicago Title Insurance for your wonderful service. For my future investments I will certainly make sure to insure with Chicago Title than any other Title Insurer.

I found your web site very easy to navigate thru, and easy to submit a claim. You were very helpful, and I thoroughly the process was very easy with all your help. Thank you once again for all your great help on that matter.
During the purchase of my first home, I took out a policy with Chicago Title Insurance Company Canada. Many Months later I unexpectedly had to open a claim due to unforeseeable issues with my home. Thankfully the entire experience from the very first phone call to the last was extremely easy. David my Claims advisor was very easy to get in contact with via email and phone and walked me through the entire process. I am not sure what I would have done without CTIC! I will definitely be recommending them and using them on any other Home purchases!
