A mortgage survey plan is different from a boundary survey and is not used for construction or for boundary determinations. A mortgage location survey is usually requested by your mortgage lender or title insurance company and is intended to provide proof that certain improvements are actually located on the property as described in the legal description. These surveys identify the major buildings on your property such as the house, garage, and sheds or other structures, as well as whether your property encroaches on any neighboring properties or easements. Likewise, these surveys determine whether any neighboring properties encroach on your property.

Boundary Survey Plan

A Boundary Survey is the process carried out to determine property lines and define true property corners of a parcel of land described in a deed. It also indicates the extent of any easements or encroachments and may show the limitations imposed on the property by state or local regulations. Easements may include a utility line easement crossing the subject property to a neighboring property or appurtenant like the right to cross another property for access to a public road. On the other hand, the use of a piece of land by an individual other than the owner unaccompanied by an authority to do so is generally termed as encroachment.

Boundary surveys are an important procedure for anyone buying a property of any type. They are typically performed prior to buying, subdividing, improving or building on land. Surveying the parcel before these activities ensures avoidance of future disputes, the expense and frustration of defending a lawsuit, moving a building, or resolving a boundary problem.


A land survey done according to the standards set forth in the ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey Specifications is known as an ‘ALTA Survey’. Here, ALTA refers to The American Land Title Association, and ACSM means The American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. The sole aim of ALTA surveys is to promote standards and nationwide uniformity in land survey information. These surveys are more common for commercial land use rather than residential.

Elevation Certificate

A flood elevation certificate is prepared by a licensed surveyor or engineer and includes comprehensive information relative to a property’s elevation to determine if it is below or above the base flood elevation. The data helps to suitably rate flood-prone properties for flood insurance eligibility. If your property/structure is situated in a flood zone, you should seriously consider obtaining its elevation certificate. A duly filled ‘Elevation Certificate Form’ is also attached with a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) or Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA).


Plot plan indicating the present or proposed use of a plot of land, especially one for a residential lot that indicates the location of structures and other important elements (such as easements or wells).
