Survey Services We Offer to Charlotte
Flood insurance is important in Charlotte and the surrounding communities in North Carolina. In order to obtain flood insurance, an elevation certificate is often required to adhere to FEMA guidelines. An elevation certificate is produced by a land surveyor. This process involves surveying the land that the property is located, documenting the topography, analyzing the elevation of where the structures or buildings are located, and overlaying onto FEMA flood zone maps. This enables the surveyor to produce an elevation certificate. The elevation certificate can be provided to the insurance company for them to provide an flood insurance policy in accordance with the guidelines.
Boundary surveys are the most common type of survey. Each property has definitive boundaries. These boundaries are typically marked by physical marker, and by documentation with the government. Our job as surveyors is to review the official records, locate the physical markers, and make determinations of the actual boundary using specialized equipment. The customer is provided with a detailed drawing of the property showing the locations of the boundaries, and physical markers that are visible to the property owner.
An ALTA/NSPS survey is the most detailed property survey. This is more than a standard boundary survey. The official records are scrutinized in detail, and highly accurate surveying equipment is utilized to ensure the most accurate survey available. The ALTA/NSPS survey is typically required for title insurance and often requested by lenders to provide a mortgage.
A topographical survey plots the elevations changes of the piece of property being surveyed. The survey also locates significant natural and man made landmarks as a point of reference and to show that there is an important elevation marker to be noted. Architects, builders, contractors, and landscapers utilize the topographical survey in their design, and to ensure that changes that they make (building, landscaping, etc) are compliant with the changes in elevation naturally on the property.
A subdivision survey is an unique type of survey that denotes new locations of pieces of property. When a larger property is divided into multiple properties, a subdivision survey is needed. This locates the property boundaries both physically, and on detailed drawings for the client and for official records provided to the government. These are typically needed when a developer purchases a large lot to subdivide into multiple residences, when a property owner would like to subdivide their land for additional family members, or a multitude of reasons.
A construction survey is necessary during a property development project. The layout survey will provide detailed drawings that will assist the builders to show where the building will be located. The construction staking are physical markers on the property to assist with locating the major components of a development. These are important for every construction project when building a structure.
