Rulemaking; Authority of Department and Commissioner


The commissioner may adopt and enforce rules:


that prescribe underwriting standards and practices on which a title insurance contract must be issued;


that define risks that may not be assumed under a title insurance contract, including risks that may not be assumed because of the insolvency of the parties to the transaction; and


that the commissioner determines are necessary to accomplish the purposes of this title.


With respect to a company operating under this title that engages in the kinds of business described by Section 2551.051 (Formation; General Purposes and Powers)(b)(1) or (2) in a manner that might subject the company to another regulatory statute of this state, all examination and regulation shall be exercised by the department rather than any other state agency named in the other regulatory statute, as long as the corporation engages in the business of title insurance.
