Doing Business Endorsement

Attached to Policy No.____

Issued By

STEWART TITLE GUARANTY COMPANY

The Company insures against loss or damage sustained by the Insured by reason of the invalidity or unenforceability of the lien of the Insured Mortgage on the ground that making the loan secured by the Insured Mortgage constituted a violation of the “doing - business” laws of the State where the Land is located because of the failure of the Insured to qualify to do business under those laws.

This endorsement is issued as part of the policy.  Except as it expressly states, it does not (i) modify any of the terms and provisions of the policy, (ii) modify any prior endorsements, (iii) extend the Date of Policy, or (iv) increase the Amount of Insurance.  To the extent a provision of the policy or a previous endorsement is inconsistent with an express provision of this endorsement, this endorsement controls.  Otherwise, this endorsement is subject to all of the terms and provisions of the policy and of any prior endorsements.
