ALTA surveys are the most detailed and common commercial surveys available. They combine a range of elements, including boundary surveys, mortgage surveys and topographic surveys to create a very detailed commercial survey. All ALTA surveys must adhere to minimum standards as set by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and American Congress on Surveying and Mapping.
As-built surveys are for recently completed commercial construction projects for records, completion evaluation and payment purposes. These surveys are completed in order to obtain horizontal and or vertical dimensional data so that a constructed facility may be delineated, i.e. foundation survey, or as-built of improvements. As-built surveys are used to physically locate structures and improvements on land and are generally for mortgage purposes.
Boundary surveys are for tracts of land that are not platted. The surveys will illustrate the boundaries, monuments and all improvements on or near the tract. Easement lines may be included in a boundary survey as well.
A boundary survey establishes the true property corners and property lines of a parcel of land. The typical purpose of a boundary survey is to obtain building permits, resolve property disputes and for erecting fences on the property.
Final Survey With Drainage
A final survey with drainage illustrates the location of the completed house and improvements in relation to the property lines, building lines and easements. This survey includes drainage on the lot or tract that meets or exceeds city requirements or home warranty requirements.
A form survey is used to illustrate the location of the form boards in relation to the property lines, building lines, and easements. We suggest that you order this survey before you install the plumbing or dig your piers.
Pool Drainage Surveys
Pool drainage surveys illustrate the location of a new pool in relation to the property lines and the house.
Title surveys are for a loan closing on a real estate transaction. The survey illustrates the lot or tract, monuments, house location and all improvements on or near the lot or tract.
A topographic survey is a detailed and accurate graphic representation of natural and man-made features on the ground such as buildings, fences, valleys, hills, streams, ponds, lakes, roads, etc. These surveys can be performed by field methods and or by aerial photography methods.
Tree surveys are vacant lot surveys with the trees located on the lot or tract. The trees are usually numbered on the survey with a corresponding tag on the tree. Many cities now require a tree survey prior to the beginning of development activities.
Vacant Lot Surveys
Vacant lot surveys include a lot stake with a drawing illustrating the boundaries and monuments, building lines, and easements, which are shown as they are depicted on the subdivision plat.
