Preliminary title reports include the plat map for the APN/ATN being sold. I wouldn't use the term tract, as not every APN is a tract. I would venture to say that most of CA land is not in a tract. :)If you think those are "great maps", then just go to the assessor's office and look up the APN in their books. I can get that map online from both my local data provider and my Fidelity online account. It's included in any property profile
Call you title company and ask for a property profile and there will be plat and/or tract maps included.
: Learning alot here thank you. I can see how perhaps the building plans and similar may not be recorded, particularly since they can be very large sheets that another poster pointed out. I dont know exactly what terms to use for what map. To me a tract map is usually a site plan that shows the entire condominium development and the buildings and unit numbers. If I am right, are these types of plans kept by the assessor, like in storage and not recorded? Why would the assessor have these, they would just need the lot lines wouldnt they, to measure land area.
: I see alot of preliminary title reports, and these guys/ladies always seem to be able to find great maps, excactly what I am loooking for. If its on a mountain top built 100 years ago, they can get the documents. I assumed they were getting them from the recorders office. Do they have another source, or are they the source of most of the original documentation?
: When a developer is going to build a tract, they probably get finaning and title insurance. The title company would do thier usual research and yes of course now that it is starting to sink in they would be intersted in having all the documents and maps from the different design disciplines (architectural, civil, other) right from the very beginning.
: Since the title company I work with isnt likely the one that did the title for the developer, the title companies must buy sell trade thier documents somehow. If any of this is correct then the title company would be the way to go wouldnt it?
: Sorry for all the questions. This subject has always been a mystery to me.
