Our survey process is quite simple to get started. Our customers are given verbal information about time frame and cost according to the specific project. If these terms are agreed upon, a contract is created and executed by both parties. The client will be asked to sign the contract, give a half down deposit, and provide us with a deed or tax notice and plat if available. Then, we go to work!

An ALTA survey is a survey which provides all involved more data regarding the parcel of land.  On the request of the client, they fill out a document referred to as Table A.  These items are selected items such as: Vicinity maps, utilities, adjoining land owners, flood plain issues, etc.  These surveys are requested when properties change hands and when they are developed pieces of ground.

A boundary survey has similar components as an ALTA survey, but deals mostly with boundary lines.  These surveys are often referred to as either property surveys, land surveys and as mentioned above boundary surveys.  These surveys are usually performed when a buyer has owned the property for a given amount of time and desires to know their boundary lines.  These are often associated with smaller transactions and projects.
