An ACSM-ALTA Land Title Survey is provided to title companies and lenders for commercial property transaction. A Land Title Survey is similar to Boundary Survey with more concentration on detail concerning buildings and improvements. A Land Title Survey is performed according to the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) and American Land Title Association (ALTA) Standard of Practice. A Land Title Survey usually shows: boundary information, buildings, easements, physical features near the boundary line, driveways, parking, and optional items requested by the client.
Land Title surveys are necessary for issuing extended coverage Title Insurance, and to remove the Survey Exceptions from a Title Insurance Policy for a commercial property.
