One of Southwest Survey’s popular services is the American Land Title Association (ALTA) survey. This survey may be required by a title insurance company or lending institution generally for commercial real estate. These surveys provide commercial properties with a detailed description of improvements, and help ensure their ability to uphold the insured title. A current title is required for an ALTA survey to take place.
