Odone Survey & Mapping specializes in providing ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys; commonly referred to as “ALTA Surveys”. We pride ourselves on consistently providing top quality ALTA surveys, on budget and on time. We have extensive experience with ALTA surveys involving large land areas and complex title considerations. We can prepare ALTA Surveys in New York, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
The ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey is a boundary survey designed around a set of minimum standards that have been jointly prepared and adopted by the American Land Title Association (ALTA), the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) and the National Society of Professional Surveyors. These standards were developed as a collective effort in order to create an accepted and recognized legal document that presents particular information in detail and exactness for acceptance by title insurance companies.

In addition to the minimum standards set forth, a table of optional elements is included in the ALTA/ACSM standards. A careful review of the elements from the optional “Table A” is helpful in defining a clear scope of the land surveyor’s services.
ALTA Surveys are recommended for commercial transactions in which extended coverage is required and/or where extremely detailed information is needed. ALTA/ACSM Land Surveys are required by most lenders, title insurers, attorneys and buyers of commercial real estate. ALTA surveys show the surveyor’s findings about the property boundaries, easements, encroachments, improvements and utilities within the property. ALTA surveys also provide information regarding zoning and flood zone designation of the property.
