Description

Surveyors and field technicians are technically oriented and tend to obsess over minutiae; like making sure the boundary corner they set is not more than 0.01 foot off. They also love the math; yet math really has very little to do with boundaries. Making sure the field crew is focused on the right things is very important if we are going to serve the primary needs and concerns of the title industry - which is the main consumer of Land Title Surveys. In this course, we explore the fieldwork requirements of an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey. Those responsible for gathering the evidence and data in the field must understand what the survey is really about and why certain items are required so they approach the task well-informed and attuned to the job at hand.

Objectives

Concerns regarding access
Describe the concerns related to access and how the fieldwork should address those concerns
Evaluate site for unwritten rights
Evaluate field conditions for the existence of possible unwritten rights that could result in title claims and therefore need particular attention when conducting the fieldwork
Perimeter boundary
Outline the three areas of interest related to perimeter boundary lines when conducting an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey
Meeting Section 5 requirements
Produce fieldwork for an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey that meets the Section 5 requirements.
