The Highly Detailed ALTA Survey

In the field of land surveying, the ALTA Survey is regarded as one of the most highly detailed products and considered the “gold standard” of land surveys to commercial real estate professionals.

Commercial transactions can be overwhelming especially when multiple parties and large amounts of money are involved. One of the most common items title professionals and lenders rely on to minimize liability during the purchasing process, is an ALTA Survey.

What is an ALTA Survey?

The ALTA Survey is a land parcel map, showing all existing improvements of the property, utilities and significant observations within the insured estate. The survey also details the licensed surveyor's findings concerning the property boundaries and how they relate to the title. The ALTA Survey is an invaluable document on which all members of the transaction can rely on to help in determining potential risks and future benefits of owning a property.

Schemmer can assist with an ALTA Survey before you sign any legal documentation, helping you play it safe during property transfers and land development. Anything less could lead to legal problems in the future, such as existing easements or encroachments.
