Types of Utah Land Surveys
The type of land survey you need depends on the reason behind it. Do you need to locate property lines, meet the requirements of a lender or title company, or split a parcel of land? If so, there’s a survey for each.
The most common types of surveys we offer in Holladay include:
ALTA stands for the American Land Title Association. ALTA surveys may be needed as a requirement for title insurance when you purchase a commercial property or home. You may also hear this type of survey called a mortgage survey since mortgage lenders may require them before financing can be secured for a property.
It’s important to know the boundaries of your land and a boundary survey can precisely define just that. These types of surveys establish the exact location of corners of a piece of land as well as property boundaries. These surveys are most often used to help home owners learn where their property begins and ends, provide guidance for new fence installations or help resolve property line questions with neighbors.
Easements are often required in the course of planning or constructing improvements on property. Hiring a professional surveyor ensures your easements are drafted and placed correctly on the land you own or can provide guidance on where exactly your current easements cover. Easements can have a significant impact on the value of real estate. They can also present problems for construction – which makes understanding the exact placement of any easements on your property crucial.
A subdivision survey is used to split a larger parcel of land into smaller parcels. Use of local subdivision ordinances, provided from your city, guides the creation of subdivisions for commercial and residential lots. These types of surveys are crucial in helping to improve public safety and public health while allowing for growth and expansion within the community.
This type of survey also goes by the name of site layout survey. It utilizes construction plans to mark the locations of new structures as well as roads and buildings. These surveys are done to help ensure that a building project is done precisely according to engineering design plans.
