"I agree with Mr. Blackmon and we see the same kind of thing on a regular basis. A good contract that spells out the certification, the product that is provided and the limits of the information to be provided goes a long way toward combating this…"

"Yes Daryl, I'm sure you've run into those "home made" certifications that they produce at the last minute, a week after the survey is finished and they want you to make outrageous statements like "there are no apparent…"

"Timothy, I like your stand on the certification. I will take this advice into consideration. As for the insurance, we have also been required to provide proof of insurance on many projects. And no way would I ever run without it. But it should be…"

ALTA/ACSM 2011 Survey Standards

I just read an article in “The American Surveyor” Vol. 7 Issue 8, pg 64 by Gary Kent, LS in which he is reporting on the changes to the ALTA requirements for 2011 and noticed one of the Table A check items will be the requirement for the Surveyor to have professional liability insurance. Does anyone else find that a bit disturbing? I think that having the ALTA/ASCM saying that what kind of insurance a company carries has something to do with survey standards is over stepping the purpose of the…See More
