Fidelity's disaster relief rate is available through its Chicago Title, Ticor Title, Fidelity National Title and Security Union Title companies on private or federal loans for victims whose properties are located in a declared disaster area. The reduced rate will apply to reconstruction loans on residential or commercial properties originated within two years of the declared disaster date for the property's location.
"The Fidelity family is committed to helping the victims of these horrendous fires rebuild their homes and restore their lives to normal as quickly as possible," said Ron Maudsley, executive vice president and co-chief operations officer, Fidelity National Financial.
So far, more than 3,500 homes have been destroyed by fires in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties. Property owners may apply for the reduced title insurance rate at any Chicago Title, Ticor Title, Fidelity National Title or Security Union office or through any of the four title companies' agents.
