Accuracy and Dependability

An ALTA survey is a survey prepared by a licensed land surveyor following detailed standards adopted by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM).  An ALTA survey maps the property’s boundaries, the location of any improvements on the property, including structures, fences, utility lines, pathways, roads, etc., the names of adjacent property owners, and the location of all access, utility and other easements recorded against the property.  The precise contents of the ALTA survey depends on the requirements of the lending company.  The minimum ALTA/NSPS land title survey requirements are provided in the following link.  The required contents of the survey are specified in Table A of the Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys previously linked. 

An ALTA survey differs from a regular boundary survey in the accuracy and detail necessary to meet the ALTA/NSPS standards. These standards are intended to provide consistency by requiring land surveyor’s to meet specific technical and conceptual standards. Technical standards relate to the accuracy and precision to which the land survey is performed. Conceptual content and performance standards specify the requirements for reporting monumentation.
