You can co market with the title company on advertising and they can share up to 50% of the cost. They cannot pay for all of you newsletter and they would need an ad in your publication. The ad itself should represent the amount of money they are sharing with you.

In Texas not only must you comply with RESPA but also with procedural rules issued by the Texas Department of Insurance (they regulate title companies in Texas).  You might want to insure you also are in compliance with any state laws.

I would get an opinion from your company's broker, attorney, and that of the lender's company. There are all sorts of nuances about what you can do and how.

It is an interesting question for American ActiveRain members.  RESPA does not apply in Canada.

Title companies are very careful but 50% should be fine! Depending on the cost!

Content Strategy for Real Estate Professionals

I have been researching in depth and have received opinions that are varying in degree. Title companies I have spoken to are so afraid of getting prosecuted, that most will not even consider any joint marketing campaigns(spoken to more than 7 large title companies). The laws seem to stipulate that any joint marketing costs need to be apportioned proportionally to the amount of ad-space that a service provider occupies on a piece of advertising material such as a newsletter( that could mean one provider pays 75% and the other 25%). However, others seem to be of the opinion that the costs have to be split 50/50, and there in lies the confusion. My company, 5group, is looking for ways to help providers share the costs of real estate services advertising in a legal, transparent and auditable way. I will continue to research and share thoughts. Do sign-up for our content marketing tips and tricks newsletter, and feel free to share your thoughts so that we can provide a better service to the real estate community at large.

I doubt Title company can share much. They can give you a free template. Printing yourself and mailing is on you at least in CA.

As long as you disclose the relationship to clients, in writing and up front, not after they starting using the lender, then it is ok.
