If you are purchasing or refinancing property, it may be suggested that you have a "Category 1A Survey" done on the property. This term refers to the standards and specifications published by the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors.
A Category 1A Land Title Survey locates all important factors affecting boundary locations, ownership lines, rights of way and easements within or adjacent to a tract of land. The important difference between a Category 1A Survey and a "regular" survey is that a Category 1A Survey is specifically designed to meet the needs of title insurance companies.
While a Category 1A Survey can be prepared on any type of real property, it is most commonly requested for transactions involving commercial and industrial real estate in urban areas. While these standards are voluntary, a reputable surveyor should be willing to provide this service.
