Why a boundary survey necessary


 One of the most common reasons a landowner seeks the assistance of a surveyor is to locate boundary lines and other lines of occupancy or possession. It is a critical piece of information to have before you build a fence or any other improvements on the property. All too often the survey shows that you and your neighbors were operating under the assumption about the placement of the boundary line between your properties. Before you have a fence erected, you want to make sure it will be built on your property, not your neighbor's.  

 Some property owners plan on dividing their property to give to a family member or sell for profit. A property survey performed by a surveyor would let you know what regulations may affect your plans. Many counties and cities place restrictions on dividing property; as a local we know these regulations and guide you through the process.

A property boundary survey performed by a professional land surveyor will help protect your investment. A survey can reveal the exact property dimensions, location and size of the home on the property, as well as any other improvement on the land, such as a driveway that may be crossing a property line. ​
