DO I NEED A SURVEY?
There are several reasons why someone might need to have their land surveyed:
Property boundaries: One of the most common reasons for a land survey is to determine the exact boundaries of a piece of property. This is important for property owners, real estate professionals, and legal professionals, as it helps ensure that all parties have a clear understanding of the property’s limits.
Construction: Land surveying is often needed when construction is planned on a piece of property. A surveyor can provide detailed maps that show the natural and man-made features of a property, including elevations, contours, and more. This information can be used to ensure that construction is done correctly and in compliance with local regulations.
Property disputes: A land survey can be used to settle disputes between property owners over the location of property lines. A surveyor can provide accurate and reliable information that can be used to resolve disputes.
Property transactions: A land survey can be required as a condition of sale of a property. This can include American Land Title Association (ALTA) and American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ACSM) Surveys.
As-Built Surveys: Construction projects are completed and sometimes documents are changed, and as-built surveys provide detailed drawings of the completed construction to reflect the current state of the property.
Subdivisions: When a property is divided into multiple lots for sale or development, a survey is required to create new property lines and ensure that each lot meets local zoning and land use regulations.
Eminent Domain: A land survey can be used to assess the value of land that is being taken by the government through eminent domain, or the right of a government to take private property for public use.
Environmental studies: Land surveys can also be used to assess the impact of a proposed development on a specific area’s environment, such as wetlands, floodplains, and habitats for threatened or endangered species.
These are some examples of reasons why someone might need to have their land surveyed. A land survey can provide important information that is used to make decisions related to property ownership, construction, and development.
