Since the adoption of the 2016 ALTA/NSPS Minimum Standard Detail Requirements, one of the most confusing changes is Optional Table A Item 11. I will try to clarify some of the more common misconceptions on this issue. Most clients want/need some aspect of utilities to be shown on a survey.
Some of the changes to the 2016 ALTA/NSPS Minimum Standard Detail Requirements served as clarification to the previous (2011) Standards. Some unfortunately, caused more questions. Although, that might just be attributed to things changing after we had been used to it being a certain way for years.
