"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…"

Timothy Lemay Blackmon, PSM replied to Steven Van Kooten's discussion ALTA/ACSM 2011 Survey Standards
"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…"

Daryl N. Penrod replied to Steven Van Kooten's discussion ALTA/ACSM 2011 Survey Standards
"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…"

Timothy Lemay Blackmon, PSM replied to Steven Van Kooten's discussion ALTA/ACSM 2011 Survey Standards
"Well, I have NEVER heard of anyone performing this high risk work without insurance.....and I routinely have to furnish my insurance information on probably half of them I do. What happened here is that there was enough "evolving" issues,…"

Daryl N. Penrod replied to Steven Van Kooten's discussion ALTA/ACSM 2011 Survey Standards
"I agree. It should not be listed on the Table "A" Optional Requirements. This is required information for some projects but should be left between the Surveyor and the Client, and not a part of ALTA survey requirements. Also, surveyors…"

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
