Why Do I Need a Category 1A Land Title Survey?

Whenever a property transaction requires a title policy, a Category 1A Land Title Survey survey is required.  This includes all transactions pertaining to the property, whether it is being sold, purchased, or refinanced.  Furthermore, the type of Category 1A Land Title Survey required is categorized into four separate conditions in accordance to property location.

What is a Category 1A Land Title Survey Survey?

Since this survey is required by the title company to insure a title, a Category 1A Land Title survey entails a greater amount of detail than a standard land title. A Category 1A Land Title Survey locates all important factors affecting boundary locations, ownership lines, rights of way, and easements within or adjacent to a tract of land. However, the level of detail required could change depending on whether or not the property in question is commercial or residential.

A Category 1A Survey Land Title Survey from South Texas Surveying Associates includes:

  • Points of curves
  • Property lines
  • Corner monuments
  • Certified maps or plats
  • Written descriptions
  • Visible improvements
  • Written report (including conflicting findings if applicable)
