What is the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey

To provide consistency and uniformity to the title insurance industry, the American Land Title Association (ALTA) created a set of national requirements or benchmarks for land surveys. To establish the benchmarks, ALTA collaborated with the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) and set forth a national set of guidelines to provide the Minimum Standard Detail Requirements for surveys, resulting in the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey.
