Columbia River Surveying & Mapping

WE SPECIALIZE IN THE FOLLOWING SERVICES:
An accurate and up to date survey of your prospective or recently purchased property will provide you with the knowledge of the location of your boundaries and third party interests in the property. With a current title report we can investigate how the evidence on the ground relates to the written legal description. We can locate easements and possible encroachments or matters of unwritten title that can only be discovered by detailed field investigations. Only a licensed surveyor has the experience and qualifications to determine property boundary location. Beware of relying on fences or the opinions of others to inform you of your property boundary locations.
We have been dealing with the unique boundaries in the gorge and surrounding areas for many years. We have working relationships with local title companies and Legal professionals and together we can advise you on the best approach to solving property boundary disputes.

We can identify prospective building sites and help orient structures to take advantage of the stunning views the region offers.
Topographic mapping can also be necessary to obtain the necessary approvals and permits from local jurisdictions to connect to the public utility network.
We employ up to date technology including survey grade GPS, Robotic Total Stations, Aerial Laser Surveys (LiDAR) and the latest software to prepare our mapping. Our mapping will be delivered in paper and digital forms to be easily incorporated into your design professionals work flow.
An ALTA/ACSM Land Title Survey must adhere to a set of national standards put forth by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping and adopted by the American Land Title Association. These special surveys are usually requested by a Title Company or Lender to aid in the issuance of Mortgage Insurance and Title Policies.
We have performed numerous ALTA surveys throughout the state of large commercial projects and multi home residential sites. Trust in us to provide the required information within the tight timelines usually associated with these transactions.

If your property lies within a federally identified flood area and is subject to the National Flood Insurance Program we can help. We can prepare elevation certificates for the determination of insurance premiums or Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA) applications to remove properties incorrectly located in the flood hazard zone.
The National Flood Insurance Program is complex and confusing for most home owners, especially if you are located in one of the local "Zone A" areas mapped many years ago. FEMA is slowly working on updating the local flood maps, however until this is done the program will continue to cause frustration for many people in the Columbia Gorge region. We have the local experience and government contacts to help provide you with the best information to navigate this complex federal program.
