Land Surveying, Real Estate, and You

Why Hire Land Surveyors

If you find yourself amidst the challenging, yet greatly satisfying endeavor of homeownership, we congratulate you. We know you’ve got a hundred things to think about as you inch toward the finish line. However, we’d like to take a moment to explain the huge importance of a land surveyor to conduct a land survey before purchasing a property.

There’s a good chance the property you’re about to purchase has been altered a fair bit since the last land survey was conducted on it. A lot of times, this includes swimming pools, fences, and additions to the house, like garages or extra bedrooms. If this is the case, you may later find that there is some discrepancy in what you own and what you think you own. Conducting an initial land survey gives you a thorough and precise understanding of exactly what belongs to you. Surveying Consultants is able to provide you the highest quality standards to guarantee that your get accurate surveys and plats.

The Process of Land Surveying

Conducting a land survey for your potential home is a rather hassle-free process, and can usually be completed in a short amount of time, depending on the property.

Let’s take a look:

  1. In-depth research – a land surveyor will absorb all available data on a given property
  2. Review of the data – the surveyor will analyze those documents, and compare them to the actual property.
  3. You’ll receive a very accurate graphical representation of everything that will belong to you, including a full overhead vantage.

Land surveying is a critical step in the process of homeownership for a number of reasons.

  • It can protect you from litigation down the road.

If you find yourself wanting to make additions to the property (fences, decks, etc.), you could easily wind up in a property dispute with your neighbor. Conducting a survey now will keep you from alienating or encroaching on adjacent properties.

Furthermore, making additions to a property can sometimes violate certain zoning restrictions that may be enforced in your area. Accidentally violating these can sometimes cause an unfortunate legal hassle for you.

If you plan on mortgaging your new home, a lot of companies will require that you complete a land survey before giving out loans.

Purchasing a property is a very important decision. A survey of your upcoming purchase of a lot, home or tract will insure against boundary issues. A survey can confirm the limits of your boundary issues with a neighboring parcel. Are there any encroachments or projections across your boundary lines? The survey will also clearly identify your property corners on the ground. If any of the corners have been destroyed, a new property corner will be set to ensure its location. One goal at Surveying Consultants is to educate people as to the importance of land surveying.
