2021 ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey Updates Affect Utility Locating

2021 ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey Updates Affect Utility Locating

Beginning today, Tuesday, February 23, 2021, a new set of ALTA/NSPS standards have been adopted. One major change affects utility locating within the property boundaries. Per Section 5.E.iv:

“A client may select from (a) plans and/or reports
provided by the client, and (b) markings coordinated by the
surveyor pursuant to a private utility locate request.
Notably, there is not an option for markings requested by the
surveyor pursuant to 811 utility locate requests.”
 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
  • No longer will you be waiting for Miss Utility to mark, and possibly mismark, your site. Engaging UPI will give you a full picture of your work;
  • Your project stays on schedule – we understand how quickly your clients want your surveys completed. We deliver an accurate map the first go-around;
  • You have a turn key solution. Want to be able to overlay the work without worrying about locating + mapping the utilities yourself? UPI can map + locate utilities within the property limits on your project systems. Let us take on 11b!
With these new standards, you’ll need a go-to private locator you can trust. UPI has been providing utility locating in support of ALTA/NSPS surveys for our clients since we were founded. You can count on us to provide what you need as you acclimate yourself to these new standards.
