Boundary Surveys

KNOW WHAT YOU OWN

Your property will be measured to find any existing monuments, and evidence of boundary lines such as; fences and any such item located within proximity of the boundary line. Other improvements on the property can be located such as buildings, driveways, ponds, utilities, etc. When a boundary survey is requested, enough monumentation and evidence is gathered to verify the true location of the property boundary in question. All property corners either found or reset, if necessary, are visibly marked by a wood lathe. The actual property corner is typically a magnetic iron bar, iron bar in concrete,  pipe, stone and or stones, that is typically found flush to the ground or underneath. The information gathered in the field is drafted to create a “picture” of the property. Final hard copies of the survey are delivered to the owner.  The survey can show recorded easements and building lines on the drawing, structures and improvements including fences, retaining walls, and items located in proximity to the property line on the drawing. A boundary survey can be put to use for the purpose of building structures, fences, landscaping, or other improvements to the property.

Unlike a Boundary Survey property corners are not marked during this survey. Potential issues with neighboring properties will not be shown on the drawing. A mortgage report does not contain enough information for building new structures or fences.
