2021 ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey Standards Effective February 23, 2021

Published On: February 2, 2021

ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey minimum standards have been updated. Sigma’s survey staff had the opportunity to attend a virtual session at the 2021 Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors annual institute outlining the modifications.

Significant updates to Table A include:

  • Removal of item #10(b) regarding plumbness of walls.
  • A change to Item #11, relating to utilities, offers the option of having the surveyor coordinate a utility locate with a private locator (which may add additional costs).
  • Removal of item #18 regarding wetlands. Location of delineated wetlandscan still be negotiated as a separate (non-title related) item.

Please see the following link for a more detailed overview of all the changes:

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to either Kevin Slottke PLS or Baiba Rozite PLS at 414.632.4200.

We look forward to helping with all your surveying needs!
