Why Do You Need a Land Surveyor?

Here are ten reasons to have your property surveyed.

  1. Boundary Lines/Property Lines: You need these legal boundaries of occupancy or possession before you build a fence, add on a sunroom, or pave your driveway. A boundary line certification will also ensure the legal description of your property is accurate.
  2. Gores, Overlaps, and Gaps: This is particularly important if your property is located next to alleys, roads, highways, or streets.
  3. Rights-of-Way, Easements, and Abandoned Roads: A survey will reveal the conditions imposed by law reflected in your property’s title report and other agreements.
  4. Ponds, Rivers, Creeks, Streams, Wells, and Lakes: Most standard surveys will report visible or surface waters only. Other types of professional inspections may be better suited to underground streams and wetlands.
  5. Joint Driveways, Party Walls, Rights-of-Support, Overhangs, Encroachments, or Projections: You have a legal obligation to support your neighbor’s driveway by maintaining your own, which may lead to boundary disputes.
  6. Existing Improvements: Surveyors will certify that the buildings and other improvements made to your property do not violate laws or other restrictions.
  7. Water, Electric, Gas, Telephone Lines and Poles: While poles and above-ground wires are apparent, surveyors can report the existence of underground cables and drains.
  8. Cemeteries: Surveys can show the exact location of old cemeteries on your property, even though this is rare.
  9. Access, Ingress, and Egress: Surveys can state whether there is vehicular access to a public street.
  10. Zoning Classification: A survey can specify if your property is zoned for residential, commercial or light industrial use.
