FEMA Elevation Certificates are used one to determine if your house or structure is in a Flood Hazard Area. A lot of Mortgage companies are automatically putting Flood Insurance on houses that may or may not be in FHA. We can file LOMA (Letter of Map Amendment) to FEMA on a case by case basis. FEMA will review each LOMA and determine if the structure is indeed out of the FHA and then send a letter stating so. This letter can be used to send to your mortgage company to eliminate Flood Insurance which can be very costly. In most cases, the Mortgage Company will only eliminate the Flood Insurance with an FEMA Certified Elevation Certificate and/or a LOMA.

What Do Land Surveyors Do?
Land Surveying is the science of measuring and mapping relative positions above, on or under the surface of the earth, or establishing such positions from legal or technical documents. Sometimes, one may also consider the Land Surveyor to be a “professional measurer”. However, the Land Surveyor also deals not only with both mathematical and physical aspects of measuring, but applies them to the legal aspects of boundary law. Modern technology has changed how the Land Surveyor uses physical measuring and applying mathematics to the work. Modern instruments used to measure the land now reduces the physical labor involved in measuring and has increased the accuracy. Advancements in computer technologies has increased the speed and reduced errors. A common misconception about land surveyors is they only work with builders. In reality, land surveyors work with a variety of stakeholders including individuals, government agencies, title companies, real estate professionals and more. Using technology and GPS, land surveyors at DuSouth Surveying perform the following functions:
- Accurate land mapping and reporting. As a primary function of land surveyors, accurate mapping and reporting of land measurements is a necessity. Whether planning to build a structure or conduct resource exploration, precise land mapping prevents land-related project delays or ownership disputes.
- Letter of map amendment. When insuring a home, homeowners are sometimes subject to additional insurance coverage, such as flood insurance, without evidence of its necessity. Often, extra insurance gets added to ordinary insurance plans without verifying whether it is truly needed. By having a land survey conducted, residents may be able to provide their insurance company with a letter of map amendment to petition the removal of additional coverage.
- Residential surveys. From planning residential development to surveying previously assessed property, land surveyors serve the needs of both investors and homeowners. Prior to construction or change in ownership, land surveyors ensure property documents accurately represent actual measurements.
- Topographic surveys. With the ability to capture specific details about a plot of land, topographic surveys record both natural and artificial land structures. Land surveyors conduct surveys of this type and create a report of existing trees, roads, walls and more. A survey of this sort is helpful when determining easements and property boundaries.
- ALTA surveys. Prior to a real estate transaction, an American Land Title Association survey is conducted to reveal any land-related issues that may affect completion of sale. Because a survey of this type requires adherence to ALTA’s rules, they should be performed by an experienced surveyor.
- Boundary surveys. Over time, land boundaries can become blurred as new structures and features are added to the surface. For future development to occur, boundaries need to be assessed. Land surveyors perform this task accurately using the latest available technology.
