Course Description:
Do you order or review ALTA surveys as part of your practice?

If you are to represent your client with the highest level of confidence and knowledge on survey matters, you need to know that there is a new set of ALTA/ACSM Survey Standards that became effective on February 23, 2011.

The new 2011 Standards are completely restructured and reorganized, and contain many new and revised requirements and Table A options. As of February 23rd, ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys are required to be performed to this new 2011 standard, which was jointly adopted by the American Land Title Association and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.

If you order, review or comment on surveys or if you interact with surveyors as part of your work, you need to be familiar with these new standards.
