Land Tech Surveying, LLC just recently finished an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey for a bank in Southeastern Wisconsin. A survey was needed of the property so that the title company could insure title to the property free and clear of survey matters.
An ALTA survey is a land survey that is made for the Title Company and/or Lender with the survey and location data needed for the issuing of title or mortgage insurance. For this purpose a map is drawn to “ALTA” specifications. “ALTA” stands for American Land Title Association.
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, the identification of easements (access rights by service companies such as water, gas, telephone, railways and other utilities). ALTA surveys are very complex surveys and can cost upwards of thousands dollars and take weeks to complete. For that reason most ALTA surveys are performed on commercial properties.
An ALTA Land Survey guarantees to meet the requirements for an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey as detailed by the American Land Title Association, National Society of Professional Surveyors and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping.
