Parking Information

by | Mar 30, 2024 | ALTA Survey, Commercial

This month we continue with a commercial real estate blog series that covers each item in an ALTA survey checklist, otherwise known as TABLE A. We will look at the benefits of each point in detail. An ALTA survey is typically utilized for commercial and industrial properties only. The requirements to perform an ALTA allow for several additional features to be added to the typical boundary survey.

  1. Number and type (e.g., disabled, motorcycle, regular, and other marked specialized types) of clearly identifiable parking spaces on surface parking areas, lots, and in parking structures. Striping of clearly identifiable parking spaces on surface parking areas and lots.

Many commercial property owners find it helpful to know the location and the number of parking spaces available as these are frequently required for zoning purposes. Surveyors differentiate between standard parking spaces and handicap spaces. Signage regarding parking is also located and shown on the drawing. In addition, differentiation between types of surfaces would also be shown.
