Description

The ALTA/ACSM standards have always spelled out in detail what records research and other information is to be provided to the surveyor for use in preparing an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey. The 2011 standards attempted to clarify and expand some of those responsibilities, in addition to adding some new requirements. The new 2016 Standards for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys provide greater clarity on to what is to be provided and, importantly, what the surveyor must do if that information is not forthcoming. In this course, we will delve into Section 4 – the Records Research section of the 2016 ALTA/NSPS standards - and explain the requirements.

Objectives

ALTA's attitude towards title research
Explain the attitude of the American Land Title Association (ALTA) with regard to title research
Records to be provided to surveyor
Outline the specific records that are to be provided to the surveyor pursuant to the ALTA/NSPS standards
When documents are not provided
Identify what the surveyor’s responsibilities are when the required documents are, in fact, not provided.
