Fire Insurance Maps $135 (with Database Report only)

Fire Insurance Maps were first published in the mid-1800s. These maps show details of urban and industrial areas such as roads, building footprints, building construction details, location of storage tanks, the building use at the time the map was prepared and the names of the building occupants. From these maps you can note the location of wells, raw material storage locations and the locations of storage tanks containing chemicals and petroleum products.

ERIS has a collection of close to 1 million historic Fire Insurance Maps covering many areas of the United States. Fire Insurance Maps may be purchased along with a database report or as part of a package.

Topographic Maps $95 per set of maps

ERIS’ topographical maps were first published in the late 1800s and now cover the entire United States. Topographic maps show natural features such as wooded areas, lakes, rivers, wetlands and topographic relief. Cities and towns are depicted along with individual structures in rural areas and man-made structures such as roads, railroad tracks, dams and bridges. Certain land disturbance activities such as quarries, mines and ditches are often shown.

  • ERIS provides digital copies of current and historical 7.5- and 15-minute USGS topographic maps for the entire United States.
  • All topographic maps are in color and include a scale bar and the year created/updated.
City Directories $115 for two streets $95 for one street

City directories are valuable historical data sources for identifying past occupants of buildings over long periods of time. ERIS works with Historical Information Gatherers, Inc.(HIG) to provide city directory services that are unique because they provide digital copies of the original city directory pages.

  • Each page includes the date and publishers name. No details are missing or misinterpreted!
  • Your site vicinity is highlighted saving you time locating information about your site.
  • HIG’s city directory collection contains directories from several publishers. HIG’s licensing agreements with major city directory publishers allow clients to include HIG’s City Directory Pages in their reports.
  • A city directory abstract can be provided as an option where directory pages are not available.

Research Parameters

  • City directory covers your site at approximate five year intervals.
  • Specify which additional street you would like ERIS to research or we will select the street for you based on the information you provide.
  • An ERIS representative will contact you if we discover conflicting or incomplete information regarding your site location and the streets to be researched.
  • For many older cities, city directory coverage can date back to the 1890s.
  • Custom city directories can also be searched. Please contact us for more details.
Historical Aerials $95 per set

ERIS works with suppliers to provide excellent quality Historical Aerials depicting the history of land use over time. They are also used to determine where to drill and sample during Phase II projects.

Highlights of Historical Aerial Photos:

  • Most of the aerials have a scale of 1” = 500’ with a few at 1” = 800’.
  • Each aerial photograph can show an area up to 5000’ x 7500’ or approximately 860 acres in size, dependent on the shape of the property. Larger sites or irregularly shaped sites may require more aerial photographs at an additional charge.
  • ERIS will provide 5 to 12 aerial photographs of different years typically ranging from the 1930s or 1940s to the near present.
  • Historical Aerials are offered a la carte and in ERIS’ multi-product packages.
Environmental Lien Search Report $115 per parcel

A network of professional, trained researchers, following established procedures, uses client supplied property information to:

  • Search for parcel information and/or legal description;
  • Search for ownership information;
  • Research official land title documents recorded at jurisdictional agencies such as recorder’s office, registries of deed, county clerks’ offices, etc.;
  • Access a copy of the deed;
    Search for environmental encumbering instrument(s) associated with the deed;

  • Provide a copy of the deed or cite documents reviewed.

If ordering with more than one address, parcel number, Lot/Block, legal description, etc., each will be charged as a separate search. They may not follow the same chain. If your client expects to pay for only one search, please choose one address, parcel number, Lot/Block, legal description, etc.

1-5 business day turnaround time (multiple parcel searches may require additional time)

60-Year Historic Chain of Title Report $305 per parcel

A search for a property’s previous owners of a certain piece or parcel of land, typically going back to 1940, showing recorded date, grantor, grantee, and recorded instrument information. A copy of the current vesting deed can be included if requested at time of order.

If splits occur (ex: current parcel was assembled from 2 or more parcels back in the 1960s), additional costs to be approved before work continues. Time required to receive approval for additional splits is not included in turnaround time. Splits must have a common back chain. Multiple chains also occur when partial interests are conveyed to multiple parties. For example, if an owner conveys 1/20 interest to ten separate owners, then each one of those ten owners has a separate ownership chain until a single party assembles them.

ERIS database reports provide current and historical environmental information for any property in North America in a concise and comprehensive manner. Key federal, state or provincial and private sector databases are researched to identify and pinpoint environmental concerns associated with a particular property. ERIS reports are used to aid in the identification of possible environmental risks for commercial, industrial and residential sites. ERIS reports meet the CSA standards in Canada and the ASTM standards in the United States. Each report contains:

  1. A map that displays the subject property at the center of a predefined radius and all adjacent properties that lay there within.
  2. A current aerial that displays the subject property and surrounding areas.
  3. An executive summary that indicates site information such as site name, address, elevation, latitude/longitude.
  4. A report summary that shows databases that were researched and the number of points that lie within preset search distance for each database. (Clicking on the database abbreviation will take you to the database descriptions section).
  5. A site report summary that lists sites within the project property and surrounding properties and indicates distance and elevation difference; sites are sorted by distance and direction. (Clicking on the ‘map key’ will send you to the relevant map; clicking on the ‘page number’ will take you to that site’s detail in the detail report).
  6. A detail report of all the records found within the radius that surrounds the site; these records can be matched to locations on the site diagram by way of the ‘map keys’.
  7. An appendix that lists definitions and database descriptions.


Functions within the database report are best optimized with Adobe 11
