T-19 Survey Checklist

The T-19 endorsement is applicable to Texas loan policies.  The T-19.1 endorsement applies to owner’s policies.  Stewart provides checklists to assist in the preparation of these forms including a T-19 checklist for dealing with reversionary rights; violations of building setbacks and easements;  a T-19 checklist for assessments, charges and liens; options or right of first refusal or prior approval a checklist for mineral interests,  and a T-19 checklist for matters discovered by a survey.  Stewart also provides a combined checklist for the T-19.1 endorsement dealing with the same issues.
