The most common surveys for these types of circumstances are:

Improvement Location Certificates (ILC’s) – Purpose: Real estate closing, buying, selling and general lot information. It is important to note that an ILC IS NOT a boundary survey. All property information is shown per recorded information. An ILC may or may not show your property corners.

FEMA Flood Elevation Certificate – A FEMA Elevation Certificate is used to determine if commercial or residential building are located in an existing flood plain. More information on FEMA Elevation Certificates can be found at by clicking here.

Land Survey Plat (LSP) – Purpose: Real estate closing, buying, selling and actual property information. A LSP is a boundary survey and it will show all property information, fence lines, buildings and found property pins. Missing property pins will be set. Per Colorado Law, this survey will be recorded with the county that the property resides in. A LSP only shows property line and property information, easements, building and fence lines.

Improvement Survey Plat (ISP) – Purpose: Real estate closing, buying, selling and actual property information. An ISP shows all the information that a LSP does, but per the client’s request, may include: Contours, landscaping, improvements, etc… As with the LSP, Colorado Law requires that this survey be recorded with the county that the property resides in.

ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys (ALTA/NSPS) – Purpose: Real estate closing, buying, selling and actual property information. More information on ALTA/NSPS’s can be found by clicking here.

Subdivision Plats and 35 Acre Surveys: – Purpose: Subdividing property.
