When you hire a land service coordinator they become the single source contact for all land service, zoning and environmental issues and questions. You no longer need to try to locate land service professionals in multiple states or cities we do that for you. A coordinator works much like a National Business Unit of a Title Company using their list of reliable contacts (land service firms) in various areas to ensure that your project is completed on time and on budget.
If you have ever tried to order land services on a multi-site transaction you soon realized the value of a good coordinator.

There are many different types of land services for a variety of industry types. Typically, most land services must meet certain Minimum Technical Standards (depending on the type of service and the jurisdiction), which are approved by the appropriate State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors.
Listed below are several common types (but certainly not all!) of land services conducted today:
The majority of lenders today will require a title search and ALTA survey before financing an acquisition or refinancing a commercial real estate property; If you plan on purchasing or refinancing commercial real estate, an ALTA survey can be a valuable tool, allowing both the lender and the buyer to evaluate the property while analyzing all potential benefits and risks of owning it. The ALTA land survey conforms to a nationally recognized set of minimum standards jointly established by the National Society of Professional Surveyors, as well as the American Land Title Association (ALTA). Once an ALTA survey has been performed, there will be a clear record containing relevant information concerned with the present and future use of the land, and all encumbrances and restrictions that may affect the property or its use.
ALTA surveys provide information about property boundaries and easements, as well as improvements and other features on the property that may affect ownership of the property and may require further investigation into the possibility of adverse rights. An ALTA survey will also show means of access to the property, the zoning classification for the property, and the flood zone classification for the property. Boundary surveys often lack the level of detail required for a commercial real estate purchaser or lender to properly evaluate the property.
An ALTA/NSPS (formerly ALTA/ACSM) Land Title Survey is a tool originally designed to enable title insurers to delete standard survey exceptions from a title policy and it has evolved into a comprehensive product that allows for a detailed view of an existing property. The ALTA Survey is a critical tool to be utilized by nearly all parties involved in a commercial real estate transaction and it is held to much higher standards of accuracy.

In order to be certified a true ALTA survey, the survey must meet the specified Requirements and Standards put in place by ALTA/NSPS. These Requirements help to ensure that a consistent, complete and accurate representation of the property and its current conditions are shown on every ALTA survey. They also give specific instruction on a number of survey items, including but not limited to, surveying standards, research, plats, surveyor certification and deliverables.
The current ALTA Requirements went into effect on February 23, 2016. Each updated version of the Requirements supersedes all prior versions and each version must be upheld by surveyors in generating, producing the survey.
