ALTA/ACSM question!

from NSPS

I have a client who wants me to prepare an ALTA survey for an easement area. Not the underlying parcel that the easement encumbers, but for the easement area itself. Theoretically, it seems that since these are standards controlling the survey, they could be applied in principle to any survey. But I am struggling with how the title report would be prepared/connected to the survey since an easement is not a title ownership of property. Any thoughts? And would anything be different if the request was for a Lease area?

Yes, it is perfectly fine to provide this type of survey. It isn't certain what the title work will look like, but you just go with what is presented, and conduct your work accordingly.

The 2016 draft standards already include "easements" as one of those odd types of parcels that a surveyor might be asked to survey. more
