ExpressMap is an innovative and cost-effective alternative to an ALTA land title survey. Developed by First American, the ExpressMap allows for provision of title insurance coverage and removes the survey exceptions to satisfy lender requirements. ExpressMap is created through a proprietary process that combines a current aerial photograph of the property as described within the title report, along with the exception items shown in Schedule B (easements, rights of way, covenants, conditions, restrictions, etc.). Once the information is layered, it is printed in color, supplied to the client, and used by our internal underwriting staff to make key underwriting decisions.
