What is a Subdivision Survey?
A subdivision survey is a specialized service that aims to partition a sizable piece of property into multiple smaller lots or parcels. This requires measurement, analysis, and mapping, all of which are undertaken to establish precise and well-defined boundaries for each newly created lot. The ultimate objective of a subdivision survey is to ensure an accurate and reliable division of land, guaranteeing a clear demarcation between each parcel.
The surveyor scrutinizes the current legal descriptions, physical boundaries, neighboring properties, and zoning ordinances to accurately determine the layout of the individual lots. Then the surveyor proceeds to generate a precise and conclusive map, known as a plat, which depicts the precise arrangement of the divided parcels of land.
The subdivision survey serves as the basis for establishing new property boundaries, allowing each divided lot to have its ownership and use. This allows for the development of residential areas, commercial hubs, and recreational areas.
