ALTA Land Title Surveys Service
ALTA survey standards are a nationwide uniform set of standards developed by a joint effort of the American Land Title Association and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. The ALTA survey is specifically designed to satisfy the needs of lenders, corporations, and title companies when dealing with valuable commercial properties. An ALTA survey is a boundary survey that has been jointly prepared and adopted by the ALTA/ACSM.
Furthermore, an ALTA survey shows progress, easements, rights-of-way, and other factors influencing the ownership of land. An ALTA Survey is often prepared for commercial properties, as it will provide the title company with the information needed to insure the title to the land and about improvements to the high degree that a commercial development may require.
Calvada Surveying surveys meets all ALTA ACSM land title survey standards. These standards, when combined with local and states government standards, create guidelines for the land surveyors to provide the client with a land survey that will be accepted by title insurance companies.
An ALTA/ACSM land title survey is used as part of the insurance and/or title certificate application, where property boundaries are required to be accurately documented and reported upon. Sometimes referred to as a “'Due Diligence survey,'' an ALTA/ACSM land title survey is often commissioned to provide information from county zoning laws, set back requirements, and height requirements of a property.
