An ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey is a comprehensive boundary survey that adheres to the national standards adopted by American Land Title Association and National Society of Professional Surveyors (formerly the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping).

Specifically designed to satisfy the needs of lenders, corporations and title companies for the development of commercial properties. ALTA surveys impose a more stringent set of requirements than typical boundary surveys.

The ALTA standards govern the content of all ALTA surveys and are denoted in the
2021 MINIMUM STANDARD DETAIL REQUIREMENTS FOR ALTA/NSPS LAND TITLE SURVEYS” as adopted by American Land Title Association and National Society of Professional Surveyors.
