The Alignment of Title Reports and Land Surveys

Understand key provisions of the title commitment, policy and features of the survey, as well as consequences and strategies for the included parties.

Surveys and title reports, though prepared from different vantages, share a trait that those who purchase and who finance real estate often lack. They reveal critical information about the real estate that only the professional provider can deliver after an investigation and analysis of the public land title records and the site. However, the formats of the informational reports themselves are stylized. This topic will explain how to focus on the key provisions of the title commitment and policy and features of the survey, and suggest consequences and strategies for the parties to the transaction. Using American Land Title Association endorsement forms, the material will offer forms of title insurance coverage available in the marketplace.
