This step ensures that the property has accurate and up-to-date boundary information, allowing for appropriate coverage and protection. Through a boundary survey, homeowners mitigate any potential risks and problems that may arise concerning the property boundaries.

A boundary survey is a crucial process that guarantees the planned project remains confined within the legally established limits of the property, complies with zoning regulations, and prevents any encroachments onto adjacent properties.

A boundary survey determines the legal boundaries of a piece of property through various surveying techniques and measuring tools. Its main objective is to accurately define the lines that demarcate the property.This type of property survey is commonly enlisted during the process of purchasing, selling, or developing a property. Its significance lies in its ability to prevent potential conflicts and misunderstandings between adjacent landowners.
To carry out the land survey, the surveyor will physically examine the land to locate any pre-existing boundary markers. In cases where these markers are absent, the surveyor will install new markers to establish the boundaries. Additionally, the surveyor will thoroughly investigate the property’s deeds and other relevant public records.
Upon completion of the survey, the customer will receive an property map, generally referred to as a plat. This map will display in detail the property lines, boundary markers, and any pertinent measurements and legal descriptions.
