THE PLAT MAP
Viewing the Subdivision Plat Map for the subject purchase property is essential due diligence for every buyer and their agent. Information found on a plat map cover sheet and final plat can include:
· Lot Dimensions
· Private and public utility easements
· “No access” easements
· Designated water provider
· Private and public streets
· Recorder’s sequence #’s for additional research documents like CC&Rs and permits
Many of the Title Commitment “Schedule B” items (the items the buyer is taking “Subject to”) may be found in the Dedication, the General Notes, and the Keynotes/Legend) sections of the subdivision Plat Map.
The plat map is included with the Title Commitment, and copies can also be obtained from our Property Research Department.
