Boundary & Topographic Survey

SLS provides clients with a final boundary resolution and its location on the map for each boundary survey and/or topographic survey. The boundary information displays setback restrictions and existing easements. Final boundary also includes flagging and posting of the property corners for onsite viewing. SLS will also set any missing property corners and file a Corner Record with the county if necessary. Topographic surveys needed for design purposes show at minimum: existing structures, elevation contours, utilities, vegetation and any other significant onsite features.

1. Corner Record – Boundary Surveys

Corner Records are a simplified form to show the change of character in a monument set by a licensed land surveyor. This corner record form can be used when there is sufficient record information to retrace the original boundary lines of a property. The Professional Land Surveyors Act (Business and Professions Code, Division 3, Chapter 15, Sections 8700-8805), defines the practice of surveying as a profession and in particular the requirements of when corner record is to be filed with the county surveyor in which the field survey was made.

All corner records made by Sage Land Surveying is required by Section 9752(d) and is discovered in the course of performing a boundary survey requested by a client.

2. Record of Survey

The record of survey is a map recorded with the appurtenant county to show a surveyor’s opinion as to the boundary and property lines of a particular parcel of land that is not shown on a recorded map or contains material discrepancies with record information. The Professional Land Surveyors Act (Business and Professions Code, Division 3, Chapter 15, Sections 8700-8805), defines the practice of surveying as a profession and in particular the requirements of a record of survey. Specifically, Section 8762 of the PLS ACT defines when a licensed land surveyor is required to file a record of survey with the county surveyor in which the field survey was made. All record of surveys made by Sage Land Surveying are required when one of the Section 9762(b) numbers 1-5 are discovered in the course of performing a boundary survey requested by a client.

3. Parcel Map

A Parcel Map is typically a recorded map of a subdivision where four or fewer parcels are created simultaneously allowing one remainder if desired. A Parcel Map is submitted to the County Surveyor’s Office for recordation and may only be made after approval of the Tentative Map. The Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, or Zoning Administrator may grant approval of a Tentative Map. Parcel Map preparation is made by a Licensed Land Surveyor or Registered Civil Engineer authorized to practice Land Surveying. Parcel Map requirements are defined in the Subdivision Map Act.

• ALTA / NSPS Surveys

What is an ALTA survey? To download the ALTA NSPS minimum standards, click here.

Members of the American Land Title Association® (ALTA®) have specific needs, unique to title insurance matters, when asked to insure title to land without exception as to the many matters which might be discoverable from survey and inspection, and which are not evidenced by the public records.

For a survey of real property, and the plat, map or record of such survey, to be acceptable to a title insurance company for the purpose of insuring title to said real property free and clear of survey matters (except those matters disclosed by the survey and indicated on the plat or map), certain specific and pertinent information must be presented for the distinct and clear understanding between the insured, the client (if different from the insured), the title insurance company (insurer), the lender, and the surveyor professionally responsible for the survey.

In order to meet such needs, clients, insurers, insureds, and lenders are entitled to rely on surveyors to conduct surveys and prepare associated plats or maps that are of a professional quality and appropriately uniform, complete, and accurate. To that end, and in the interests of the general public, the surveying profession, title insurers, and abstracters, the ALTA and the NSPS jointly promulgate the within details and criteria setting forth a minimum standard of performance for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys.
