Why do I need an ALTA survey?
Short answer: Commercial Real Estate Due Diligence; we are your boots on the ground; your Professional Land Surveyor is hired to confirm area, encroachments, easements, potential prescriptive easements, flood zone and other visible or known title issues that might affect your purchasing decision or price.
An ALTA may appear as just one more annoying purchase checklist item to you but it is very important.
You should allot sufficient time and resources to define a clear scope and then commission an experienced Professional Land Surveyor familiar with the area.
Please remember to attach your Title report, (EPre version if available), all pages, timeline, custom lender’s requirements or certification statement.
