Surveys: Why Survey Matters Matter

Recorded May 11, 2017



We all know that title insurance companies search records to find anything that might affect title to property they are asked to insure. However, some things can only be discovered by a physical inspection of the property. Title companies can’t perform a physical inspection of every property, but they often have a survey that will disclose some – though not all – matters that could indicate a “fact or possession” issue that’s different from the “historic or record” title. This is why survey matters matter: they can identify matters that might lead to claims or disputes.

Survey matters can help you make an informed underwriting decision regarding acceptable risk, but only if you know about them and how to handle them. To assist with that process, this webinar will cover:

·         What types of surveys are acceptable for title insuring purposes

·         What elements are required to make a survey acceptable to the title company

·         What “survey coverage” means, and how we provide it in a title insurance policy

·         What title policy endorsements and amendments are available to provide survey coverage in Texas

·         And much more!

This webinar’s materials are useful in preparing for the TLTA certification exam, as well as for increasing your knowledge on this important subject.
