ALTA survey's are almost always needed in commercial real estate transactions. A prerequisite to obtaining an ALTA Survey is a current title commitment. The title commitment will contain the legal description of the property and of any encumbrances to prepare the ALTA survey. The process of performing a boundary survey starts with a complete and thorough research of the county/municipal records. The pre-survey research provides knowledge of the land and potential conflicts with the surrounding lands. The land surveyor also uses surveying software to complete and prepare the ALTA survey.
