Data Trace geographic coverage legend & Terminology

Term Definition Advantages / Notes

Geographic Plant

A specific database of county-recorded documents affecting title of real property ownership, indexed specifically by the geographic location of a property and searchable by its APN, legal description or physical address within a county.

Geographically indexed plants streamline the title search process by indexing all recorded documents, deeds, judgments, liens affecting the title of a specific property, saving valuable time.  The traditional standard in the title industry, geographic plants are the most desired plants for verifying chain of title.

Grantor/ Grantee Plant

A specific database of county-recorded documents affecting title of real property ownership, generally indexed by the names of parties involved in real estate transactions within a county.

Grantor/ grantee-indexed plants offer an alternative to searching title when access to geographic plants is unavailable or restricted. 

Images

Digital images of documents officially recorded in a county recorder/ clerk’s office and affecting the title of real property ownership.

Data Trace’s database of over 6 billion recorded document images provide our settlement services clients with the necessary documentation to support their decisions and efficiently complete their files.

Plant Type

Each title plant is given a designation based upon the type of plant and depth.

Traditional Plant (T) – A title plant with 10 or more years of geographically indexed data.

Alternative (A) – A title plant with less than 10 years of geographically indexed data, a title plant with solely grantor/grantee data or a georgraphically indexed title plant with varying depths that is no longer updated.

Data Trace provides multiple plant options to match any operational budget. By leveraging our databases and advanced searching options, our plants provide the flexibility needed to increase the speed of researching processes.

Tax Data

Information maintained by a county tax assessor which provides records of property tax payments and obligations.

At Data Trace, we offer three levels of tax service which provide a combination of assessed values, property identification information, current year tax obligations, prior year delinquencies and verification of tax liability using information from various collection entities.

Tax Type

Each tax county is given a designation based upon the tax information source and frequency of delivery.

Static Tax (S)
- Tax data is updated annually from the county assessor or tax roll.

Dynamic Tax (D)
- Tax data is updated annually from the county assessor and supplemented by county tax roll information on a weekly or monthly basis to determine currency of payments.

Full Service Tax (F)
- Tax data is updated annually from the county assessor and supplemented by county tax roll information on a more frequent basis to determine currency of payments or delinquency status.

As market demands change, the frequency of tax status updates will fluctuate accordingly.  The frequency of files changes seasonally throughout the year for full-service counties.  For example, Texas orders files more frequently (weekly) during January and February (the tax payment season).  By contrast, California orders files more frequently around December and April, but less during the summer months (when the counties slow their updates to prepare for the new fiscal year.) 

File availability will vary by county.  Please consult with your Data Trace representative for additional information.
