What is an ALTA Survey?
Originally, the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey was formulated to be a document on which the title insurer could rely to make specific underwriting decisions regarding the deletion of the standard survey exceptions within a title policy. When issuing this policy (in most cases to the lender), the holder of the policy wants these standard exceptions removed. As time has passed, the ALTA Survey has become an invaluable document on which all members of the transaction can rely to assist in determining potential risk and future benefits of owning a property.
ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey
The ALTA Survey was first developed in 1962 by ALTA (The American Land Title Association) , representing the title insurance industry, and ACSM (The American Congress on Surveying and Mapping), representing the land surveying industry – now NSPS (The National Society of Professional Surveyors).
