A property survey describes maps and locates land ownership boundaries, corners, features and improvements.
Land and its improvements are major financial investments; therefore, boundaries should be located and mapped by a property survey and filed in public records.
Professional land surveying involves less time and expenses than moving a building, revising land development plans or defending a land boundary dispute in court.
To prevent unnecessary costs and inconvenience, give us a call prior to any land investments and property developments.
A property should be surveyed when:
- It is divided into parcels
- It is to be sold, purchased or mortgaged
- Improvements are planned or developed
- Government regulations require a survey
and map of your property
- Boundaries or corners are uncertain
- Property trespass is evidenced or suspected
- The legal description of your property and related records will be evaluated and a survey
made to locate, measure and monument the property boundaries and corners so they can
be easily identified
- A record of survey measurements notes and computations will be made, a survey plat or
map prepared for public records, and copies provided as may be required
- The property survey will be completed in compliance with applicable state, county and local
government laws, codes and regulations
- You will be informed of the discovery of any property description, boundary location,
trespass, encroachment or other related problems that you should be aware of
- Upon completion of the property survey, it is recommended that the boundary corner
monuments be protected and preserved by the property owner
- A copy of property deeds, abstract of title or title insurance commitment and maps and
other available information relating to the property
- If necessary, meet the Land Surveyor at the survey site for inspection or consultation
- Consult with the Land Surveyor at the earliest opportunity; in some cases a survey may
require several weeks to complete
