April 19, 2021

Free Webinar to Explain Changes that Could Impact Commercial Transactions

Revisions to the Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys went into effect Feb. 23, 2021. The changes primarily focus on modifications to make the standard easier to understand. Refinements also address unintended liability placed on surveyors while assuring lender and title needs are still adequately met. Other changes impact reporting of easements and how underground utilities are shown.
