Paramount Title is a Utah corporation created in 1976. It is co-owned by Steven L. Knott and Robert M. Tucker. For 25 years, Paramount has been underwritten by Commonwealth Land Title, the oldest title underwriter in the world.
Commonwealth is part of Land America, which is the holding company of Lawyer's Title, Transnations Title formerly Transamerica, and Commonwealth Title. Land America has annual revenues of about two billion dollars $2,000,000,000.
Paramount's strong underwriting protects people who receive title policies issued by Paramount as well people who deposit money and deeds in trust with Paramount. Paramount receives and disburses several millions of dollars each month.
The combination of strong financial backing, local ownership, and experienced friendly people has been the basis of Paramount's success.
