In the world of real estate, accuracy and detail are paramount. ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys play a crucial role in this regard, providing comprehensive data that assists title companies, lenders, and borrowers in identifying potential risks when evaluating properties for purchase. These surveys are essential for ensuring a smooth and informed real estate transaction.

What is an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey?

An ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey is a detailed map of a piece of land that includes critical information about the property boundaries, easements, existing improvements (such as buildings, walls, trails, and roads), flood zones, zoning, parking summaries, encumbrances, and potential encroachments. This survey adheres to the standards set by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS), ensuring uniformity and precision.

Key Benefits of ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys

  1. Risk Identification: By detailing property boundaries and potential encroachments, these surveys help identify any issues that could affect property ownership or use. This is crucial for mitigating risks before finalizing a purchase.
  2. Clarity for Title Insurance: For a survey to be acceptable to a title insurance company, it must disclose all pertinent information clearly. This ensures that the property title can be insured free and clear of survey matters, except those disclosed by the survey. This clarity helps in avoiding future disputes and claims.
  3. Informed Decision-Making: With detailed information about zoning, flood zones, and existing improvements, stakeholders can make informed decisions regarding property development and usage. This is especially important for lenders and investors looking to assess the property’s viability and potential.
  4. Efficient Transaction Process: Surveys conducted by professional firms like Calvada Surveying are known for their accuracy and efficiency. By taking into account specific items needed for the property, these surveys help meet escrow deadlines, ensuring that real estate transactions proceed smoothly.
