ALTA Land Title SurveysWhat Type of Survey Do You Need?
An ALTA survey is completed for the Title Company and/or Lender for the issuing of title or mortgage insurance. The survey has to meet the minimum precision and detail requirements established jointly by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).
ALTA specifies the data to be shown on the survey and this includes boundary lines, location of the main building including improvements, location of ancillary buildings, and the identification of easements (access rights by service companies such as water, gas, telephone, railways, and other utilities). There is also the option to include other items such as underground utility location, height of building, square footage of the building and underground structures. All of these items and more can be included in the survey by filling out the ALTA table “A”.Start a Survey Quote
