New Threats Impact Timely, Cost-Effective Access to Public Land Records
|October 26, 2010|
The American Land Title Association continues to monitor legislation and regulation impacting access to public records.
ALTA’s position on the cost to obtain a reproduction of a public record or document in any format should be the public record custodian’s actual out-of-pocket cost to produce the reproduction.
Jay Sibley, chairman of ALTA’s Real Property Records Committee, has provided an update to recent challenges impacting the timely and cost-effective access to public land records.
The update includes a discussion of legislation in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
This update was written by members of the “Bulk Access: What’s Happening on the Legislative and Other Fronts” panel, a professional development session at the 2010 ALTA Annual Convention, sponsored by ALTA’s Real Property Records Committee.
