Dear Associates:

Please find the attached All Inclusive Residential Schedule of Charges For Title Insurance in the State of Michigan which has been approved for use effective August 1, 2015. The Manual has been changed to remove the Simultaneous Issue Rate and to modify some of the Endorsements fees.
