IN Title Company began as Meredith & Meredith Law & Abstract Office in 1887 and Cox and McGongale Abstract Company in 1910.  James W. Smith purchased Beebe Title Company, Inc., later Beebe & Smith Title Company, Inc. (successor to Cox and McGongale) in 1994 and James W. Trulock purchased Delaware County Abstract Company, Inc. (successor to Meredith & Meredith) in 1988. Those two companies were merged into Indiana Title Insurance Company, LLC in 2002 and became IN Title Company in 2009.  Our title policies are underwritten by the largest and most financially sound underwriter, the Fidelity family of title insurers, which includes Fidelity National Title Insurance Company and Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company.

Throughout this long history a title plant for Delaware County was developed and is still maintained, which consists of a database of property records indexed by location.  As the only full title plant in Delaware County, it is often utilized by our partners to supplement their research.  This easily accessible information makes it possible to conduct title searches swiftly, accurately and completely.

IN Title Company is a full-service, comprehensive title agency handling every type of real estate transaction, both residential and commercial, with offices in Muncie and New Castle. Always locally owned and committed to the communities we serve, IN Title Company is one of the most recognized and respected title companies in East Central Indiana.
