Reasons to Conduct an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey

The ALTA/ACSM survey is an accredited land title survey for commercial purposes. It is conducted by a reputable and approved survey corporation that has licensed and certified land surveyors. The survey is specifically for commercial purposes and it is conducted following a uniform set of codes for construction purposes. It is important for a land surveyor to follow and meet the standards as set by authorized institutions and the government to ensure a reliable data.

At times, an ALTA/ACSM land title survey is referred to as ‘due diligence surveys’, and it can be commissioned to gain information on county zoning laws, height requirements of the property, and setback requirements. The information will be crucial to assist lenders and buyers in evaluating property or land for potential risks. Likewise, it can be useful when determining the benefits of owning that certain land or property.

The ALTA/ACSM land title survey is applicable to different needs as it provides data on the property easements and boundaries, while offering further suggestions for land improvements, such as roads, fences, rights of ways, and roads. The survey can be valuable when you need information on other features on the property that may determine or affect ownership. It can be crucial when information is needed about the land that is being investigated due to property adverse rights. A survey may reveal improvements and easements, encumbrances, ownership areas, encroachments, boundaries, and other important aspects of a land’s ownership.

The ALTA/ACSM land title survey provides a more detailed, precise, and faster way to obtain information about a commercial property, making it more preferred over traditional and standard land surveying methods for mapping and contouring. However, it is important to hire a reputable and qualified ALTA/ACSM land surveyor to ensure the highest-quality results and a cost-effective service. This type of professional is highly trained and specializes in the most advanced land surveying technologies and methods.
