ALTA/NSPS American Land and Title Association & National Society of Professional Surveyors

ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys are detailed surveys performed to standards set forth by the American Land and Title Association and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.

These surveys are often required for real estate transactions involving high-value properties. The standards specify accuracy and what is to be included in the survey.

CGA has successfully completed ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys for numerous large-scale projects.

Our registered & licensed surveyors can help 

With all your ALTA or Land Title survey needs.

This is a special type of detailed boundary survey that must be performed by a registered licensed surveyor and prepared in accordance with certain, more stringent, standards. These types of surveys are often required by lenders or title companies to depict:

  • parcel boundaries
  • improvements
  • easements
  • rights-of-way

and other elements that may impact land ownership, such as encroachments and unrecorded interests or uses for commercial property.

As always, one project manager will be assigned to your project from start to finish, ensuring responsiveness and clear communication.

In Summary


The ALTA/NSPS survey addresses additional issues such as reviewing the title commitments, depicting current zoning conditions, and providing accurate measurements between boundary corners.


The surveyor will review the commitment and provide an accurate description of the face of the survey as to how the exceptions and other matters affect the property.


The surveyor will also certify that the survey was performed in conformance with the minimum standards.
