    IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- First American Natural
Hazard Disclosures (FANHD), a member of The First American Corporation
(NYSE: FAF) family of companies and a leader in the real estate disclosure
report industry, announced today that it has launched the FANHD California
Property Tax Disclosure Report(TM), creating a cost-effective choice for real
estate professionals and their clients.
    A property tax disclosure report is used to alert homebuyers to current
and future taxes, fees and assessments that will be imposed on a property.
This type of information can prevent unnecessary surprises in the home-buying
process. Much of the information is also required to be disclosed by
California law.
    FANHD recently invested in acquiring and further developing its own tax
information database as a way to offer customers more choices in the
marketplace. FANHD's new tax disclosure report provides an additional resource
for California's real estate professionals and competitive prices for
homebuyers and sellers.
    "First American's tax disclosure report provides multiple benefits to real
estate professionals and their clients," says Gino Blefari, president and
chief executive officer of Intero Real Estate Services. "The reports provide
excellent liability protection for consumers and assist the industry in
keeping prices competitive, which is always in the best interest of the
consumer."
