Property surveys, also called boundary surveys, are used to show boundaries of a real property in which a surveyor and mapper have determined the position of a boundary of real property in complete accord with the real property description.
There could be various reasons why one would want or need a boundary survey, but the most common are when work is being done on or modifications are to be made to an existing structure. In most cities and municipalities a survey is required to obtain the proper work permits.
Depending on where you live, often times when purchasing a home, the lender will also require an up to date survey of the property before the sale closes.
Some common needs for a property survey could include:
- Adding an addition on to an existing structure.
- Permitting required for any of the following: Fence, pool or driveway.
- Buying a new home
Occasionally we come across instances where neighbors are in disagreement over their property lines and who should have access to a certain piece of property. This can commonly happen when one neighbor wants to build a fence on their property and their neighbor may not agree with the established line. In these instances a property survey can help in establishing the correct property lines to help settle the dispute and allow for any work on the property in question to commence.
