How to get final policy if title company is defunct?

Asked by Frank, Michigan Fri May 2, 2008

I bought a house last year, and I never got the final policy from the title company. I figured I'd give them a call, but their phone has been disconnected. I even drove to their office to check it out, and it looks abandoned. Is there any mechanism for handling closure of title companies? That is, do they have to turn over their work to other companies, or can they simply go out of business with nobody to pick up the pieces? What should I do next?
