Cuesta Title Company is closing all of its offices in San Luis Obispo County as of midnight, Dec. 31.
The company will no longer accept new title or escrow orders. Stewart Title Guaranty Company, an underwriter for the firm, will handle all of Cuesta Title’s existing escrows after the closure.
Cuesta Title’s Division President Kathy Reese would not comment on the closure beyond providing a brief news release, which blamed the downturn in the economy for shuttering the business. Cuesta was established more than 20 years ago. Reese referred all questions to a company attorney, Jim Buttery, who could not be reached for comment.
