What it is.

A Running List

An ALTA survey is a visual representation of what is contained within a title report for a property. A title report can be hundreds of pages of legal descriptions of the property, easements or encumbrances on the property, encroachments, and liens. It’s a running list of everything that has happened or affects a certain piece of land.

In addition to completing a thorough Boundary Survey and locating any improvements or possible encroachments along the boundaries, we also locate the building(s) and other improvements, including roads, walkways, parking, and visible utilities.

Once we have created this aerial image (sometimes literally using a drone) of the property, we then overlay any easements that affect the property, usually related to ingress-egress and utilities entering and leaving the site. There is also an option to incorporate zoning information on the survey to make sure the property is in compliance with current zoning regulations.

How it Works.

The Gold Standard

ALTA surveys leave virtually no property issues unaddressed.

ALTA surveys are often referred to as the gold standard for all land surveys. Through a system of rigorous standards created by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) lenders, land and title professionals are guaranteed a consistent and accurate product no matter what part of the country the transaction is taking place. With a comprehensive ALTA survey in hand, the purchaser now has the confidence and documentation needed to obtain funding and extended title insurance for the commercial and sometimes high-end residential property they are buying.

We employ only the best talent in land surveying, from onsite surveyors to project managers and operators. We are professionals. Experts. Deeply trained, highly motivated — ready to get the job done.
