  • The American Land Title Association is the national trade association designed to protect home buyers and mortgage lenders

  • An ALTA Survey is a boundary survey prepared to a set of minimum standards (Learn more)

  • A Boundary Survey is a procedure by which a Professional Land Surveyor establishes the corners of a parcel of land.

  • A Boundary Survey is the interpretation of evidence. Surveyors are fond of saying “Monuments over Measurements.”

  • Topographic Surveys are used to identify and map the contours of the ground and existing features on the surface of the earth or slightly above or below the earth's surface (i.e. trees, buildings, streets, walkways, manholes, utility poles, retaining walls, etc.).

  • Construction Staking, also known as a Site Layout Survey, is the process of interpreting construction plans and marking the location of proposed new structures such as roads or buildings. Construction staking is performed to ensure a project is built according to engineering design plans.

  • The staked reference points guide the construction of proposed improvements on the property, and will help to ensure the construction project is completed on schedule, on budget and as intended.

  • Subdivision Survey (commonly referred to as subdivision platting) is the process of splitting a tract of land into smaller parcels. This shows monumentation and survey data on a map in conformance with local subdivision ordinance and the Subdivision Map Act. 

  • The subdivision ordinance gives standards for designating residential and commercial lots, roads (rights-of-way), parkland dedication, drainage and utility easements, and how city services will be extended to each lot. These standards are created to improve public health and safety.

CONDOMINIUM PLATS
  • A Condominium Plat is similar to a subdivision plat. The difference with a condominium is that the Weygand Surveyors measures, locates and defines a building (usually) into individual units. These units are defined by the airspace between the finished walls, floor and ceiling surfaces. 

MORTGAGE / LOAN SURVEYS
EASEMENT AND RIGHT OF WAY SURVEYS
  • When you purchase a home, your lender wants to know exactly what you are paying for and what it is lending the institution's money for. This is why you have a survey fee on your closing documents.

  • A survey is required by most mortgage lenders. It may or may not include a drawing. The amount of detail that is required on a mortgage survey is regulated by the states.

  • Easements are the right to use a piece of land without granting ownership. Although sometimes they may significantly affect the value of the land, in many cases easements are simply a fact of life, and there are many types of easements that you may not even know about even though you live with them every day.

  • Rights of Way and Route Surveys are legally protected routes that the public can travel through a definitive map.

PREPARATION OF DEED DESCRIPTIONS
FEMA FLOOD ELEVATION CERTIFICATES
  • A legal description of a property for a deed.

  • The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Elevation Certificate (EC) is an administrative tool of the NFIP which is to be used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with to community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, or support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA).
