One of the questions that I receive on a lot of occasions is "What is an Improvement Location Report?" An Improvement Location Report (ILR), is solely for the use of title and mortgage companies in buy/sell transactions or refinances. An improvement Location Report can be used when there is already a filed plat of the property recorded in the courthouse.
An ILR does not require the surveyor to perform a diligent search for monuments and should not be used if there may be a concern of any sort of dispute. The Board of Registration for Engineers and Surveyors require wording on the ILR that states "this ILR is NOT to be used by the owner for any purpose".
