Add Survey Term to Dictionary in Your Language

Land Surveyor's Dictionary is an ongoing community project to crowdsource surveying definitions and terms with examples for the next generation land surveyor to learn from. If you are a Land Surveyor, add a term to the Almanac with its definition and examples. Help improve the collective knowledge of the community by improving upon terms added by other surveyors by commenting with your examples and applications in your local surveying environment.

Improvement Location Report (ILR)

Improvement Location Report (ILR)

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.

What is an Improvement Location Report

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".
