(a) A title insurer may obtain reinsurance for all or any part of its liability under one or more of its title insurance policies or reinsurance agreements and may also reinsure title insurance policies issued by other title insurers on risks located in this state or elsewhere.  Except as provided in subsections (b) and (c) of this section, reinsurance on policies issued on properties located in this state shall be obtained from title insurers licensed to transact title insurance business in this state.

(b) Upon application by a title insurer, the commissioner may permit the insurer to obtain reinsurance from a title insurer not licensed in this state where capital and surplus of the unlicensed title insurer meets the requirements for licensed companies under section 38a-405.

(c) Upon application by a domestic title insurer, the commissioner may permit the insurer to obtain reinsurance from a property and casualty reinsurer accredited pursuant to the provisions of section 38a-85, provided such domestic title insurer has executed an affidavit setting forth facts showing that such insurer was unable after diligent effort to procure, from another title insurer, a reinsurance treaty that is reasonably consistent with what is fair and appropriate under commonly accepted commercial practices.  Such title insurer shall include such affidavit and a copy of the proposed reinsurance treaty with the application filed by such insurer with the commissioner.
