Over time, the style of surveys has evolved differently from one region to another and from one surveyor to another. This can complicate or delay a transaction. By following the ALTA/ACSM Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for Land Title Surveys the surveying profession will also standardize its products to facilitate a common understanding for the various clients.

The objective of this seminar is to explain the contents and purpose of an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey for both the surveyors and the clients. For the clients, it explains both how to order the survey and how to use and interpret the final drawings. For the surveyor, it explains how to display the many survey issues in a standardized format to facilitate its use by the client. For both, it provides a protocol of communication to fulfill the needs and goals of each.
