An ALTA survey provides information unique to title insurance matters. Members of the American Land Title Association (ALTA), having specific needs, are asked to insure title to land without exception as to the many matters which might be discoverable from survey and inspection, and which are not evidenced by the public records. In order to meet such needs, clients, insurers, insurees, and lenders are entitled to rely on Land Surveyors to conduct surveys and prepare associated plats that are of a professional quality and appropriately uniform, complete and accurate. An ALTA survey is much more thorough than a boundary survey, including the location of utilities, easements, rights-of-way, and other elements impacting the ownership of land.
