ABOUT US

Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. is one of the oldest continuously operated title companies in the State of Florida.  For over 110 years Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. has served not only Jackson County, but all Northwest Florida as an abstracting and title insurance company. 

 

 J. A. Ormand, Marianna Abstractor and insurance agent, began in 1906 to lay the foundation of the Florida Land Title and Trust Co.  He understood the tremendous task of cataloging the history of land titles in Jackson County.  Florida Land Title & Trust Co. was incorporated on July 21, 1910.  Mr. Ormand continued to operate Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. until 1963 when Robert (Bob) and Pat Crisp purchased the thriving title plant and office. In 1996 Ivan (Van) and Susan Kunde purchased Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. from the Crisps.  Their son Richard Kunde joined the business in 2006.  In over 110 years Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. has only had three owners.   

 

Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. is a charter member of the American Land Title Association and the Florida Land Title Association.  We are licensed to insure the title of property for the two largest underwriters:   Fidelity National Title Insurance Co. and First American Title Insurance Co.  We are the only title insurance company in Jackson County to be able to search property using our own in house title plant documenting the history of land titles for over 100 years and the most up to date technology.

 

Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. opened a satellite office in Chipley, Florida in 2009.  This office allows Florida Land Title and Trust Co., Inc. to expand its services to a larger area offering customers the opportunity to travel a shorter distance for their title needs.
