    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."
