An American Land and Title Association Survey, also known as an ALTA Survey, is performed to help commercial lenders understand the property and any title issues or expectations to the title insurance. ALTA surveys include a list of minimum standards, but also has itemized a la carte items that can be selected from the "table A." Each added item will increase the amount of data on the survey as well as the cost of said survey. A current ALTA title report is needed to provide an ALTA survey. Element Land Surveying understands the ins and outs of ALTA Surveys and will be able to help clients navigate the regulations and laws attached to ALTA Surveys.
