Brookfield Land Surveyor

Land Tech recently helped a developer layout 5 different condo buildings on 5 different lots in a condo development in Brookfield, Wisconsin. It was very important to have the layout of all the buildings ahead of time to make sure that all the building setbacks were met. Two of the buildings were staked and will be ready for excavation once the building permits are issued.

There seems to be some positive action within the condo industry in Southeastern Wisconsin. Some of Land Tech’s developers have purchased bankrupt developments from the banks, and are able to turn a small profit. Land Tech has staked out multiple condo buildings in Milwaukee county and Waukesha county in the last few months.

ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey in Butler Wisconsin

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.

Elevation Certificate – Washington County Land Surveyor

Land Tech Surveying, LLC, just recently finished an Elevation Certificate and a LOMA for a land owner in Jackson, Wisconsin in Washington County. They are in the process of refinancing their home and now are forced to buy flood insurance for the first time.  FEMA came out with new flood maps in 2008 for most of Southeastern Wisconsin which shows an expanded range of floodways.  This has affected thousands of homeowners, which are now forced to purchase flood insurance for the first time or at a higher rate than before.

Land Tech has completed numerous elevation certificates over the last year, and has helped many land owners either lower their flood insurance or completely get rid of their flood insurance.  In return, they will save thousands of dollars over the years to come.

Land Tech Surveying, LLC, will help those who feel they are paying for flood insurance unjustly, or would like to have their home rated at a lower risk for flooding.  Having been through the process many of times, we understand the frustrations and complexities this process may entail.  Put our experience to the test as we have successfully helped many of our clients save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year.  Let Land Tech fill out an Elevation Certificate or a LOMA, and let us handle this difficult process with FEMA to lower your flood insurance.

Brookfield Wisconsin Land Surveyor – Call (262) 367-7599

Land Tech Surveying, LLC recently completed a boundary survey for a client in Brookfield, Wisconsin.  The property consisted of a 1/2 acre parcel in a residential subdivision.  The owner was looking to re-build his fence, but the City of Brookfield requires and updated survey to do so.  It turned out that the original fence in the rear of the lot was built 1 foot past the property line.  The new fence will now be moved over so that it does not encroach onto the neighboring property.  This is one reason why it is important to have an updated Plat of Survey done if you are planning on doing any sort of construction on your property.  If you or someone you know is looking for a land surveyor in Brookfield or a land surveyor in Waukesha County, give Land Tech Surveying a call at 262-367-7599 or visit our website at www.wisconsinsurveys.com.

Milwaukee Land Surveyor – (262) 367-7599

Last month Land Tech Surveying, LLC completed a boundary survey for a client in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  The property consisted of a corner lot which was part of a subdivision called Murray Hill which was subdivided in 1890.  Property surveys of this nature can be very difficult because all original monumentation has disappeared over the years.  The entire block ends up getting resurveyed and the lot is calculated proportionately from there.  In this case it was important to have a survey done because the owner will be building a fence.  If you are building a fence or any other structure, make sure you have an updated boundary survey done.

Sussex Wisconsin Land Surveyor – (262) 367-7599

Last month Land Tech Surveying, LLC completed a boundary survey for a client in Sussex, Wisconsin.  The property consisted of 2 different parcels totaling 2.5 acres.  The owner is looking to build a home on the property at some point, but for the time being, he just wanted to see where the property lines were.  When he does decide to build, the 2 parcels will have to be combined into one.  In order to do this a Certified Survey Map, otherwise known as a CSM will have to be drafted and recorded with Waukesha County Register of Deeds.  For now it was important for the land owner to know where his boundary was so that he can decide where he would like to build and he has a visual of how large his lot is.  If you or someone you know is looking to build a house, contact a land surveyor to start the planning process and have a boundary survey or plat of survey done.
