Creditors' rights endorsements removed from title insurance

Here's an article in REBA News by Joel Stein about changes to title insurance. (REBA News is the trade journal for the Real Estate Bar Association for Massachusetts.)

According to the article the American Land Title Association, or ALTA, has withdrawn Endorsements 21 and 21/06 as official forms, effective March 8, 2010. Those endorsements provided "creditors' rights coverage," providing coverage to mortgage lenders who lose their interest in a property due to the bankruptcy of someone in the chain of title.
