ALTA Owner's and Lender's Policies: Procedures and Information


Gain insight into ALTA procedures.

There is a vast spectrum of interests in land. Conveyances, regardless of how carefully they are drawn, may not achieve their intended effect in the event that the property interest of the grantor is inalienable, or if there exists an estate in the same land vested in another party who does not co-sign the conveyance.  Recordation of a document purporting to transfer or convey the grantor’s interest does not in and of itself effectuate a transfer.  Only an examination of the grantor’s chain of title will reveal whether the estate the grantor holds is alienable, or subject to estates in others. This white paper reviews how certain feudal estates recognized as common law, such as the estate tail, are no longer recognized or have been abolished and discusses fee simple, leaseholds, mortgages and additional estates or interests.
