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.




On Wednesday, September 3, 2014, the Abstractors Board will be moving to
421 NW 13th Street, Suite 180, Oklahoma City, OK  73103

This is our physical address as well as our mailing address.  Please notify everyone in your company that sends mail to us to update our information.  Our telephone numbers and fax number will remain the same but our fax number may not be installed until Friday, September 5th.  If you have trouble calling us on Wednesday the 3rd, please call me on my cell phone, (405) 664-7971.  The telephones should be in service no later than Thursday.
