ALTA/ASCM Land Title Surveys

Primarily used for commercial, industrial, and high density residential properties, the ALTA/ASCM Land Title Survey is a comprehensive boundary survey that also identifies all pertinent improvements on the property, lines of possession, easements and other encumbrances, encroachments, land use restrictions, means of ingress/egress and any other notable features and/or issues that should be brought to the attention of the parties interested in the property.

The American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ASCM) have jointly developed standards that are recognized nation wide and must be followed when performing an ALTA/ASCM Survey.  The ALTA/ASCM Survey is specifically designed to satisfy the needs of lenders, corporations and title companies to identify and address specific issues during their due diligence process. 

For those clients unfamiliar with ALTA/ASCM surveys, CFS Engineering helps the client to understand each component of the ALTA/ASCM survey process.  The Standards include "Table A Optional Survey Responsibilities and Specifications" which is a list of additional survey components that may be requested by the client if necessary.  The "Table A" requirements help customize the survey to meet the specific needs of the client and their lender.  It is very important for the client, lender and/or legal council to understand and justify the requested additional "Table A" requests.  Unnecessary "Table A" requests may substantially increase the cost of the survey.

Normally requested by clients during escrow, CFS Engineering is conditioned to performing ALTA/ASCM Surveys under tight time constraints.  We have performed ALTA/ASCM surveys all over the Bay Area, including the Counties of Somona, Marin, Napa, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey.
