2013 ANNUAL TITLE REVIEWS ARE DUE BY JANUARY 15, 2014
In order to streamline the annual title review filing process, the Department of Insurance created the 2013 Annual Title Agent / Agency Review Form (INS3283.13). This form replaces the forms previously known as Appendix/Form A, Appendix Form B and Appendix/Form C. To download the 2013 Annual Title Agent/Agency Review Form (INS3283.13), click the following link: INS3283.13 - 2013 Annual Title Agent/Agency Review Form
The INS3283.13 form must be submitted by all title agents and agencies, even if a title agent or agency qualifies for an exemption. Further, if an individual holds both an individual and business entity license, two (2) separate filings are required.
When completing INS3283.13, it will be necessary for sections 1, 2, 3 & 4 to be completed in their entirety. Section 4, entitled “Determination Of Filing Status,” will assist agents and agencies in determining if they qualify for an exemption to the independent annual review requirement.
All filings should be unbound, unstapled, and unfastened, and printed on single sheets of 8 ½ x 11 paper.
2013 annual reviews should either be e-mailed to Title.Filing@insurance.ohio.gov or mailed to:
The Ohio Department of Insurance
Attn: Enforcement Division - Annual Title Insurance Filing
50 West Town Street - Suite 300
Columbus, OH 43215-4186
As the annual filing requirement is mandated by law, it will be necessary for the Department to pursue administrative action against agents and agencies who fail to file the INS3283.13 as required.
