Smith-Roberts National Corporation offering ALTA Land Survey Coordination Services.

Online PR News – 15-December-2011 – – Smith-Roberts National Corporation is offering nationwide ALTA land title survey coordination services for multi-site/multi-state real estate transactions. SRN will address survey and title issues prior to closing and throughout the due diligence period.

ALTA and ACSM (American Congress on Surveying and Mapping) have jointly developed a set of land surveying standards, with the objective of setting common standards in land survey information on a nationwide basis. This gives lenders, title companies, national companies and surveyors some consistency over the types of surveys they review. Without this common nationwide standard, commercial multi state/multi-site transactions would become complex, expensive and tedious.

Commercial real estate transactions require Title Insurance to complete the closing transaction. Title insurance policies are sometimes termed as ALTA policies and a licensed ALTA Land Title surveyor is required to issue them. Smith-Roberts National Corporation (SRN) was formed in 1989 as one of the first nationwide coordinators of ALTA and ASCM Land Title Surveys.

Commercial real estate transactions that span several states and include multiple property sites (see below) almost always require an ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey for the insurer.
• corporate mergers and acquisitions
• national franchise chain acquiring another franchise operation
• private equity firm purchasing a nation-wide rental property
• refinance

Smith-Roberts National Corporation was formed in 1981 to meet the specific survey needs of clients who are working on multi-site and multi-state real estate transactions. The most important advantage in having one firm coordinate the acquisition of land title surveys is that, as professional surveyors, SRN can more effectively communicate your needs to other licensed surveyors in a professional manner and will coordinate all required surveys and site information. Acting as your liaison, we can reduce the difficulties that you encounter when dealing with numerous surveyors from different regions of the country.
