ALTA and NSPS Announce Changes to Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys
Changes Effective February 23, 2011
If you are involved in real estate transactions, you may need a land title survey to document important details impacting the ownership of the land, such as improvements, easements, rights-of-way and other elements. To obtain a complete, thorough survey, KS Associates recommends you specify an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey and work with a Professional Surveyor who understands the Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for these surveys.
The Value of ALTA/ASCM Standards
ALTA/ACSM Standards are nationally accepted requirements jointly prepared by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS). NSPS is a member organization of the American Congress on Surveying & Mapping (ACSM). Surveying to these standards helps protect all parties involved in the transaction and can:
- Reduce risk in the real estate transaction.
- Help define survey-related title exceptions.
- Result in a quality map or plat that documents important details about the property.
- Help make the real estate transaction process as smooth as possible.
