Course Description:

In this presentation, we will discuss how a survey and a title insurance commitment work together, namely how the survey impacts the ability of the title company to provide certain coverages to its insured under a title policy.  There is an interplay between the survey, the title commitment/policy and the endorsements that the title company is able to issue with its title insurance policies.  We will discuss the removal of the survey exception, access, contiguity, same-as-survey, ALTA 9, utility access, ALTA 28 coverages and land under development endorsements where title insurance coverage is tied to site plans.  This presentation will focus on the importance of the relationship between surveyors and title underwriters and how they can best assist each other in providing quality products to their customers.
