Do I Need a Survey?

Do I Need a Surveyor?

Purchasing real estate is one of the most significant financial investments a person makes in their life. Having a survey done by a Professional Land Surveyor prior to purchase is an essential step in gaining peace of mind. 

Land surveys can eliminate the costly expense of having to move a building, fence, garage or driveway. While most neighbors may agree where they think the property lines are, boundaries are not always where they appear to be. Agreements may not hold up in court if there is a discrepancy.

Land boundaries, especially those in question, should be located and mapped by a Professional Land Surveyor, and filed as a public record, prior to purchase. 

Most municipalities also require a current survey be completed to acquire a permit for construction
