NORTH AMERICAN TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY is a seasoned title insurance underwriter, helping title agents to achieve their individual business goals for more than 50 years. Today, the company conducts real estate settlement services in 39 states and the District of Columbia through a network of experienced, independent agents and its affiliates. In the past several years, we have become known as the “underwriter next door,” because our associates are always easy to reach and our processes are, at all times, quick and straightforward. Our agency application process is fast and transparent for qualified agents. NATIC offers a one-hour underwriting response guarantee that is unparalleled in our industry. In addition, we value our agents based on their title industry knowledge and experience, not just on profits alone.

Kent D. Pelt

Vice President, Western Region Underwriting Counsel

Along with the other members of the Western Region underwriting team, I am responsible for developing and implementing underwriting standards, guidelines and procedures for North American Title Insurance Company (NATIC) and other companies under the States Title umbrella.  My primary role involves working with and supporting NATIC agents and affiliates with underwriting guidance and risk mitigation in title issues in California, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

Prior to joining NATIC, I was Managing Attorney/Of Counsel for an Orange County, California real estate law firm, Vice President, Title Operations Manager and General Counsel for a leading national title insurance company’s Hawaii operations and Claims Counsel for a variety of companies, including a leading national financial services company and a national title insurance company. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California, Irvine and Juris Doctor degree from Western State University College of Law. I am a member of the State Bar of California, Orange County Bar Association and serve on the California Land Title Association Forms and Practices Committee as Chair of the Electronic Recording and Notarization, and Title Documents Sections.
