ALTA Survey

When buying or refinancing properties, a lender or buyer may require that you purchase an ALTA/ACSM survey as part of the title insurance. Commonly referred to as just an "ALTA Survey" it is a surveying standard jointly accepted by the American Land Title Association and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping that incorporates elements of a boundary survey, mortgage survey, and topographic survey. The minimum standard requirements including a table of optional items that can be requested are available here. A properly completed ALTA survey is one of the most complex and potentially litigious surveys requested, sometimes taking weeks to complete and with a cost corresponding to the assumed liabilities.

lot line adjustment

 If you find that you are using a portion of your neighbor’s property or that they are using a portion of yours, you may want to have your property lines adjusted. The local agency (city or county) requires that you file an application for a lot line adjustment. We will write a legal description and provide a map showing the existing and proposed property lines, along with any buildings, major features such as sport courts or driveways, and all significant features in the area affected by the adjustment. Under certain circumstances the staking of new improvements based on this adjustment would require a record of survey also to be recorded.
