Prevent costly errors, maximize ROI and stay informed about the state of your property with our proactive, GIS-powered due diligence platform, LITAS.
Total Visibility Into Your Land Transactions
Proper due diligence — and knowing the exact boundaries and assets in a land sale transaction — is a critical step for timberland and farmland investors. Traditional methods can be too slow and inaccurate in providing a total account of what is really on a given property.
Orbis combines rigorous legal review with GIS-based mapping to provide a faster, more accurate due diligence solution. Unlock a visual and digital display of your assets– condensing and eliminating outdated paper trails. This helps you reduce process errors up to 95%, speed up closing and avoid expensive, last-minute surprises.
How LITAS Works
- Collect and review deeds, tax and legal documentation
- Validate legal descriptions
- Construct GIS map of legal and actual boundaries of assets
- Digitize documents into the cloud
- Flag discrepancies with automated, easy-to-use software
- Resolve inconsistencies before the ink dries

You Pay For
If you’re investing time and resources into a land transaction, you should know precisely what you’re getting. Our land transaction due diligence gives buyers, sellers and investors visual confirmation of what they’re buying, selling or financing. This fulfills fiduciary responsibility and improves timberland and agricultural land deals.
We consider review of the legal descriptions to be a vital part of the title review process. The LITAS system and Orbis team have proven to be capable and efficient partners for mapping and verifying legal descriptions under a limited time frame. The process often reveals errors and issues, both small and large, that should be considered prior to closing and that we simply could not uncover and address without using LITAS.
