If the value of your transaction is large, you may be asked to provide an, "ALTA" survey. This is a survey done in accordance with the Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for ALTA/ACSM Land Title Surveys. These standards were adopted jointly by the American Land Title Association, and the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. ALTA/ACSM survey requirements call for submission of Table A to the surveyor when you request the survey. Table A is where the scope of the project is determined. Your lender or attorney should be able to provide you with the information you need to complete Table A.
