what is an alta survey?
The ALTA Survey is a detailed map of the land showing all existing improvements of the property, utilities, and significant visual on-site observations within the insured property.
An ALTA survey is really a combination of many other land surveys including: boundary survey, title survey, as-built survey, and a location survey.
A through title search is completed by a title company which results in a title commitment report being provided to the surveyor by the client.
Then, a Professional Land Surveyor takes that title commitment, performs a field survey to locate the required items and optional Table A items selected by the client, and generates a land survey plat detailing all title and field findings.
