Welcome to the Oklahoma Abstractors Board!
The Oklahoma State Legislature adopted the Oklahoma Abstractor’s Law (Title 1) January 1, 2008, which directs the Oklahoma Abstractors Board to regulate Oklahoma’s abstract industry.
The office of the Oklahoma Abstractors Board (OAB) employs an Executive Director, Inspector and Administrative Assistant to staff the Board office. The Board issues Certificates of Authority, individual abstractor licenses as well as Permits to Develop Abstract Plants. In addition, the Board offers testing monthly to individuals seeking their abstract licenses.
The OAB also investigates consumer and industry complaints concerning abstracting issues and attempts to resolve them by using informal resolution methods.
The Board is now complete for the FY2014/15 year but it is not too early to begin thinking about serving the industry by volunteering to be on the Board at a later time. If you are interested in any of the Board positions for the future, please click the link above and apply to serve Oklahoma.
