MACSTAM Title Insurance Agency Services

A distinctive aspect of our real estate practice is McGlinchey Stafford's affiliation with its wholly owned title insurance agencies, MACSTAM Title Company LLC in Louisiana and MACSTAM Title Company (Florida), LLC in Florida.

These affiliates operating under the MACSTAM brand serve as agent for the major national title insurance companies and issue title insurance policies to owners, lenders, purchasers, and lessees of property in Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi, as applicable.

Our MACSTAM affiliates work closely with several title abstracting companies to provide a full range of title abstract and search services on Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida properties, from policy updates and tax information to complex abstracting for multiple-site and major commercial developments. By examining titles for over 30 years, the MACSTAM affiliates have amassed files containing titles and abstracts that have traced ownerships back to the 18th century, in French, and across the most tangled inheritances and rights.

MACSTAM’s ability to place title insurance and provide related services creates significant efficiency and increased quality in the delivery of title services and the successful completion of real estate transactions.
