VESTRA offers a full-service, one-stop shop for real estate-related projects. Our Survey Department specializes in all areas of surveying including Minor and Major Subdivisions, FEMA Flood Elevation Documentation, Boundary and Topographic Surveys, Right-of-Way and Route Surveys, American Land Title Association (ALTA) surveys, Legal Description preparation, Expert Witness services, Construction Staking, Boundary Resolution, and survey data analysis. Our Licensed Land Surveyor has experience with the preparation and processing of survey-related maps and plats and is exceptionally familiar with the Subdivision Map Act and Professional Land Surveyor’s Act.
We also assist buyers and sellers with Due Diligence needs, having completed hundreds of Real Estate Site Evaluations since our Environmental Services Division was founded in 2002. All Property Transfer Evaluations are conducted pursuant to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. The goal of the site assessments is to identify environmental conditions in connection with the property, to the extent feasible, which may pose a future environmental liability. Our work includes ASTM Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments, Environmental Liability Appraisals, Environmental Transaction Screens, Feasibility and Cost-Benefit Analyses, Historical and Regulatory Reviews (current and past site activities), Conservation Easement Documentation, and detailed Site Characterization and Remediation. VESTRA has conducted these for commercial, multi-residential, industrial, and agricultural properties ranging in size from less than 1 acre to over 30,000 acres. One of our areas of specialization is working with large rural properties.
