About Common Ground

Welcome to Common Ground Online (and Welcome Back)

If you’re a PLTA member, welcome back to Common Ground. And if it’s your first visit, we’re aiming to make you want to return soon and often. PLTA’s Common Ground Online will continue a tradition of quality in communicating with our member in PA’s land title industry.  And we also plan to broaden our outreach to our colleagues in the real estate, legal and banking professions. Finally, we want to help explain and illuminate this proud and vital industry to the homebuying public at large.

Ambitious? Yes. But we’ve got great experience to guide us. Common Ground magazine began production in 1993, with the integration of “Title Policies” case commentaries and the newsletter of PLTA. The resulting first issue was a 12-page quarterly publication which included news on PLTA and its people, PLTI programs, legal and judicial developments and advertisements. Over the subsequent 15 years, the magazine grew to 24 pages, and included extensive coverage of title news, trends, Association activities and legislative priorities. Common Ground has been recognized with awards as one of the best publications of its kind.

We are determined to maintain the high quality of the print publication in Common Ground Online.  The online platform allows us to cover and comment on news as it happens, and to continually refresh the feature and human interest material that makes Common Ground Online a “must-read” medium for anyone involved and interested in title insurance in Pennsylvania.
