The CLTA has decided to offer the Title Consumer and Title Reporter brochures/handouts electronically through this website only; therefore, the printed brochures will no longer be available for purchase. However, we stand behind your company's efforts in supplying your clients and consumers with outstanding brochures, and therefore offer the Title Consumers and Reporters electronically at no charge. This allows you, as a member company, to create your own brochure and/or flyers to distribute. The CLTA requires only that the following quote be included when reprinting (including an approximate date to determine whether or not a publication is the most current version):
"Reprinted with the permission from the California Land Title Association (date ________ )"
