First Title appoints new business development director

First Title, provider of title-related services, has announced the appointment of Phillip Oldcorn as underwriting and business development director.

Oldcorn was previously involved in developing First Title&#39s commercial property title insurance services.

First Title, a wholly owned subsidiary of the First American Corporation, counts Halifax, Alliance & Leicester, GMAC-RFC, Intelligent Finance and the Woolwich among lender clients and has lawyers based in First Title&#39s offices in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin.

Oldcorn says: “Over the last few years, First Title has developed a range of title insured remortgage products and legal services to assist both small and large lenders, whether they distribute loans through brokers, branches or by internet and whether they originate a small or large volume of loans each year.

“Over the next 12 months, First Title will be enhancing its product range. My job will be to develop new relationships and deliver the unique benefits of our products to lenders, mortgage brokers and law firms throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.”
