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.

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.

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.

Sussex Land Surveyor – (262) 367-7599

Last month Land Tech Surveying, LLC completed a boundary survey for a client in Sussex, Wisconsin.  The property is a 1 acre residential lot in a subdivision.  It was important for the land owner to know where his boundary was so that when he gets to building a fence, it will stay on his property.  There were also multiple utility easements cutting through the property that were shown on the survey.  If you are about to buy a property, make sure to have an updated survey done before closing.  A small cost ahead of time can save you a fortune in the future.

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.
