Anybody near Cabazon, CA?
I've had a request for a referral to perform an ALTA survey on 11 acres of undeveloped desert land near Cabazon, California. I see it is in between Hemet and Palm Springs. I don't believe that an ALTA Survey is really necessary but I'll leave that to the buyer and their lender.
Between Hemet (flatland) and Palm Springs (flatland) is a whole bunch of non-flatland (mountains). Cabazon, too, is on the other side of that non-flatland from either of those two locations.
In Cabazon, in Hemet or in Palm Springs maybe. Between, however, is not meant for a flatlander, such as your humble servant.
JA, PLS, SoCal
I'm in Hemet. I suppose I could always take a look if this is a good client, but anything up there on the 10 is getting to be a haul for us. Drop me a line if you think it may be worth it.
Thanks, Drew. I sent you a direct message.
Jerry - I don't really understand your magniloquence. Looking at the streetview of the property on google maps the subject tract seems to be on the relatively flatish part of the town inbetween the non-flat parts. There is a draw, arroyo, wash, gulch, or creek that crosses part of the tract to tribute into the nearby Gorgonio River, but it doesn't look particularly lumpy.
The area is flat for the most part. There are portions of some tracts that climb into the mountains. The biggest issue in this area is the lack of recent surveys and existing monumentation from the tracts created in the late 1950's. Bringing the boundary back in could become complex.
The other issue is the land is cheap so property owners equate that to cheap surveys, hence lack of recent surveys. Since this is a ALTA, and probably a record of survey, maybe the owner will understand the potential cost.
