Boundary Survey in Wisconsin

Land Tech just recently finished a boundary survey on a 152 acre farm in the Town of Hubbard, in Dodge County Wisconsin.

What is a Boundary Survey?
A boundary survey is a survey to establish the boundaries of a parcel using its legal description which typically involves the setting or restoration of monuments or markers at the corners or along the lines of the parcel, often in the form of iron rods, pipes, or concrete monuments in the ground, or nails set in concrete or asphalt.  In the past, wooden posts, blazes in trees, piled stone corners or other types of monuments have also been used.  A map or plat is then drafted from the field data to provide a representation of the parcel surveyed.

Elevation Certificate and LOMA in Kewaskum, Wisconsin

Land Tech Surveying and Engineering, LLC, just recently finished an Elevation Certificate and a LOMA for a land owner in Kewaskum, Wisconsin in Washington County.  They were paying a very high rate of flood insurance on  a property that has been high and dry for as long as they can remember.  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 dozens of elevation certificates over the last year, and has helped numerous 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 and Engineering, 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.

ALTA/ACSM Surveyor in Wisconsin

What is an ALTA/ACSM Survey?
A land survey 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 a thousand 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.

Certified Survey Map in Wisconsin

Land Tech Surveying and Engineering, LLC, can help those in need of a Certified Survey Map.  Every county in the state of Wisconsin requires a Certified Survey Map (CSM) for all divisions of land that result in the creation of a new lot, tract or parcel (up to 4 lots).

The first step in any land division is to contact your local County Zoning Department to set up a date for a preliminary consultation.  This consultation is used to promote a better understanding of the developer’s intentions and County regulations.  This early contact can also reduce potential delays in the review process by giving both parties a clearer picture of what is needed.

Land Tech can now complete the CSM and submit it to the Planning Department for review.  If changes or corrections are required in the CSM, then we will make the needed changes. Following the review, the CSM is taken to the Register of Deeds office for recording.  Land Tech is very familiar with the County procedures and can provide further information regarding these requirements.

It is important to remember that this process does take some time.  Plan accordingly.  Other required permits, such as sanitary permits or building permits, may be delayed until the CSM is recorded.  Make sure that enough time is allotted for all the necessary reviews.  For further information on this process, please contact John Downing with Land Tech Surveying & Engineering, LLC, at 262-367-7599.
