VIKA has over 36 years of experience in the preparation of ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys, for financing or acquisition purposes.  We have an extensive library of surveys performed in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia, and Suburban Maryland.

We’re extremely knowledgeable concerning the required coordination needed on your behalf, and implementation of the necessary optional Table A items in accordance with the latest ALTA/NSPS requirements effective on February 23, 2016.

We understand that the true purpose of an ALTA Survey is to not only perform an accurate field run survey that establishes the property line location and exception/easement locations in relation to the existing site improvements, but specifically to assist the Owner and support the Title Company in clarifying title issues for accurately issuing title insurance.

We recognize that the survey may ultimately be used to coordinate with a Land Use Attorney and the Title Insurer to remove title exceptions that no longer encumber the subject property and to understand Developer rights and/or constraints.

VIKA has the unique capability of assisting you in anticipating design constraints associated with future entitlements or by-right site plans and, in addition, prepare a due diligence report with title results and recommendations.


VIKA always anticipates that you’re operating under significant time constraints.

While the final field survey is underway, or in advance of completing an ALTA/NSPS survey, we can provide an advanced Title Exhibit based on advanced and enhanced GIS/jurisdictional record information that depicts locatable title exceptions, as a separate deliverable, so that your Attorney and the Title Company can begin to move forward with their initial review.

In certain jurisdictions, we’re able to determine approximate location of old overhead utility lines and often find that we can satisfy the Title Insurer, and those exceptions may be deleted or further clarified.

VIKA appreciates the opportunity to assist your office with any issues related to property acquisition, financing or development through the development of an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey.
