ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys provide detailed information for the title insurance companies, create a uniform national standard and provide legal protection for both the surveyor and the client. The ALTA/NSPS survey allows a client to order a survey of land in a different state or region and provides assurance that it meets the standards set by the American Land Title Agency and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
We provide the required design and as-built for designing power, oil, natural gas, sanitary sewer, stormwater, steam, and water lines.
A basic boundary survey establishes or re-establishes a boundary line between neighboring (adjacent) properties. A permanent rebar “pin” is set in each corner of your parcel to identify the property limits. Additionally, we can provide you with an official map of your boundary survey.
A Right-of-Way (ROW) survey is used to determine legal width and placement of a road or easement boundary. Acquisition surveying is someone acquiring a piece of property to benefit them (ie: new road, gas line).
Right-of-Way mapping or Acquisition Mapping is a boundary survey of contiguous parcels of land to be acquired for roadway or drainage purposes. The Right-of-Way map, parcel plats and property descriptions must be prepared under the supervision of a Registered Professional Land Surveyor (RPLS) and in compliance with all rules set forth by the NYS Board of Professional Land Surveying. Although Right-of-Way mapping involves boundary surveying, there are important considerations that make ROW mapping unique.
The surveyor preparing ROW mapping must understand that the preparation of Right-of-Way mapping and the preparation of plans, specifications, and estimates for a roadway improvement project are concurrent activities. As soon as possible, the surveyor must inform the design engineer of any existing condition which might impact the design and the design engineer must in turn inform the surveyor of any design change, which will impact the Right-of-Way mapping.
A Subdivision Survey locates and divides one complete parcel into 2 or more parcels that includes lots, streets, rights-of-way, easement restrictions, and utilities. All necessary corners and dividing lines are marked/monumented, establishing all legal boundaries of the surveyed area.
Geodetic Control Survey
A Geodetic Control survey is used to determine the precise position of distance points on the surface of the earth.
FEMA Elevation Certificate
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Elevation Certificate (EC) is an administrative tool used by the NFIP. It is used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances; to determine the proper insurance premium rate; and/or support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) to remove a building from the Special Flood Hazard Area.
As part of the agreement for making flood insurance available in a community, the NFIP requires the community to adopt a floodplain management ordinance that specifies minimum requirements for reducing flood losses. One such requirement is for the community to obtain the elevation of the lowest floor (including basement) of all new and substantially improved buildings, and maintain a record of such information. The Elevation Certificate provides a way for a community to document compliance with the community’s floodplain management ordinance.
Topographic surveys gather data about the elevation of points on a piece of land and presents them as contour lines on a plot. The purpose of a topographic survey is to collect survey data about the natural and man-made features of the land, as well as its elevations.
