The AMERICAN LAND TITLE ASSOCIATION, together with the NATIONAL SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL SURVEYORS, has developed a nationally promoted and standardized checklist for IMPROVEMENT SURVEY PLATS. This rigorous list, called “TABLE A”, requires that the realtor, mortgage lender or person ordering this type of survey authorize this optional list of 21 specifications (most of which are already covered by Colorado State Statues) which may be negotiated between the surveyor and the client.

Due to the extensive checklist, and the use of the “trademark” of ALTA/NSPS, these kinds of surveys are generally ordered for commercial property and require that a title commitment, along with the “Table A” be furnished to the Professional Land Surveyor when the survey is ordered. Call us to discuss whether this kind of survey is needed.
