    Updated Licensing Regulation Released

    The OSI has released the final version of the Licensing Rules, which updates the New Mexico Regulation to dovetail with the changes brought about by the new Producer Licensing statute that became effective in July of 2017.  A copy of the Regulation can be found here.  Although it is 24 pages long, the title industry is not subject to most of it, because title producers have been categorized as a ‘limited line’ of insurance (refer to section, C-5 on page 4).  The important information for title producers is mostly contained on page 10 under section
