Kleveland v. Chicago Title Insurance Co. (2006) 141 Cal.App.4th 761

Herb Fox

Case Conclusion Date:July 24, 2006

Practice Area:Arbitration


Description:Is an arbitration clause in a title insurance policy enforceable where arbitration was not mentioned in the preliminary title report and where that report referred to a policy that was different than that actually issued by the insurer? The Court of Appeal found that under these circumstances, the arbitration clause was not incorporated by reference into the preliminary report and is not binding upon the insured.
