Every place on earth will have particular types of surveys which can be performed and various types of professional land surveyors to perform them.  Here are the types of surveys which can be performed in the state of Kansas, in this day and age.

Mortgagee Title Inspections

The sole purpose of this inspection is to obtain mortgagee title insurance. This is the minimum service that your lender requires for closing your loan. It is a location of improvements and a cursory check for violations or encroachments onto or from the subject property based on existing but not confirmed evidence. This does not constitute a boundary survey and is subject to any inaccuracies that a subsequent boundary survey may disclose. No property corners will be set and it should not be used or relied upon for the establishment of any fence, structure or other improvement. No warranty of any kind is extended therein to the present or future owner or occupant.

Boundary Survey

A boundary survey of the subject property will be made and the property corners will be located and verified or reset. This survey is normally performed on vacant property. A check for violations or encroachments onto or from the subject property will be made. This of survey can be used, by the property owner, for the construction of a fence, structure, or other improvements.

Boundary and Improvement Survey

A boundary survey of the subject property will be made and the property corners will be located and verified or reset. The improvements on the property will be located and a check for violations or encroachments onto or from the subject property will be made. This survey can be used, by the property owner, for the construction of a fence structure or other improvements.

Tract Survey

A tract survey is similar to a boundary survey in that a boundary survey of the subject property will be made and the property corners will be located and verified or reset. This survey is normally performed on large parcels of land, which have improvements that do not require location. A check for violations or encroachments onto or from the subject property will be made, with the primary emphasis being concentrated along the property lines for to establish any conflicts between the surveyed line and any apparent lines of possession. This survey can be used by the property owner, for the construction of a fence, structure, or other improvements.

ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey

This is the most comprehensive type of survey and improvement location. It covers all aspects of the boundary survey and improvement location and identification of any additional evidence of possession or use, which could be adverse to the interests of the purchaser. This type of survey is normally only performed on commercial property because of the expense involved.

Architectural/Topographic Survey

This is a survey of real property with the main purpose of determining the configuration of the surface of the ground and the location of all natural and artificial objects, including utilities, drainage ways, structures, ingress and egress to the property and any other visible limitations or enhancements to the property. This survey should be performed in conjunction with a Boundary Survey to show lines of possession and is normally conducted for an architectural planning or engineering design projects.
