If the amount of the assets of a title insurance company held in trust or held by the Commissioner under G.S. 58-26-31 should on any date be less than the amount required to be maintained, and the deficiency is not promptly cured, the title insurance company shall immediately give written notice of the deficiency to the Commissioner and shall not write or assume any title insurance until the deficiency has been eliminated and until it has received written approval from the Commissioner authorizing it to again write and assume title insurance. (1969, c. 897; 2002-187, s. 7.9.)
