ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys

Title Insurers have specific needs related to title insurance matters, and when asked to provide an insurance policy without any exception relating to survey matters, a set of standards governing ALTA surveys was developed by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS). The ALTA Survey is a detailed map of the land showing all existing improvements of the property, utilities, and significant observations within the insured estate. The survey details the surveyor's findings concerning the property boundaries and how it relates to title. The Survey delineates or makes note of all easements and exceptions cited within the title commitment for insurance of the secured party. The survey may also show zoning and flood zone restrictions or areas indicating potential future use of the property. The ALTA survey is a combination of a boundary survey, title survey, and a location survey. The ALTA standards govern the content of all ALTA surveys and are denoted in the "2021 MINIMUM STANDARD DETAIL REQUIREMENTS FOR ALTA/NSPS LAND TITLE SURVEYS" as adopted by American Land Title Association and National Society of Professional Surveyors.

Other Surveys and Services

Boundary Surveys

A boundary survey determines the property lines of a parcel of land described in a deed or referenced on a legal record plat. A boundary survey is recommended before buying, subdividing, improving or building on land. Surveying the parcel before these activities ensures that the expense and frustration of defending a lawsuit, moving a building, or resolving a boundary dispute can be avoided.

Topographic Surveys

Topographic surveys involve the process of ascertaining and representing upon a map the contour, physical features, and other physical representations of any portion of the land being surveyed.

Zoning Reports

Most real property transactions require a Zoning Report along with the battery of other essential services (Phase I ESA, Property Condition Assessment, ALTA Survey, etc.). Our Zoning Reports are completed by our in-house zoning department with quick turnarounds and at very competitive rates.
