Allied Capital Title is a full service title insurance agency servicing real estate transactions throughout multiple counties in Central Illinois and Central Indiana.
We have 9 locations, each locally operated and staffed with experienced and knowledgeable title professionals to assist customers with their title needs. Our staff works closely with attorneys, real estate agents and lenders to make the process simple and efficient for acquiring or refinancing a residential or commercial property.
With Illinois locations in Champaign, Charleston, Danville, Effingham, Paris, Sullivan, Tuscola and Springfield (Zelle Title Services), Allied Capital Title is able to service over 20 counties. An additional office in Crawfordsville, Indiana provides service to 9 counties.
Included in those counties are:
According to the Executive Order Issued by the State of Illinois March 21st, 2020 concerning Shelter in Place, title insurance companies are an essential business under paragraph 12 (f). Therefore, Allied Capital Title will continue to accept and process new title orders. Additionally, ACT will continue to perform real estate closings at all eight of its offices.
Allied Capital Title offices are open for appointments only.
All efforts should be made to reduce the number of individuals attending a closing. We are asking for only individuals who are signing documents to be present. To reduce the number of attendees, please consider the following options:
Obtaining Power of Attorney: We are suggesting that you obtain, "Power of Attorney" approval from your clients. Contact buy-side lenders in regards to any upcoming closings. By obtaining a power of attorney approval in advance you can avoid delays at the closing table and limit the number of people required to be at closing.
Seller Documents Pre-Signed: We are suggesting that you ask any seller clients to pre-sign all documents, eliminating the need for them to attend a closing.
If requested, all cash closings can be handled my mail/drop off methods.
Buyers and Sellers will sign documents in separate rooms.
Please do not be more than 10 minutes early to your closing.
Closing rooms are disinfected after each closing including tables, chairs, door handles and shared supplies. New pens will be provided to each signer.
If You or a Client are Sick: If you are not feeling well, we ask that you do not come to the office for a closing - bringing even mild sickness to those who you are working with or interact with only opens up the door for people with more weakened immune systems to get sick.
Travel Ban: If you or your client attending a closing have visited a country for which the CDC has issued a travel ban, it is recommended that that person be self-quarantined for 14 days after they arrive home before returning to public life. Anyone traveling to such a country, whether it is currently on the list or is added to the list, may not visit to an Allied Capital Title office until 14 days have passed without any symptoms (14 days starting from their arrival home).
Allied Capital Title is taking all measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and our clients. If you have a more specific question concerning a closing or need additional accommodations made, please reach out to your local office.
