A Survey is recommended and/or required before buying, subdividing, improving or building on land.  There are many other reasons to order a Survey:

Find ISSUES before you SELL! Don't let unforeseen problems place your SALE in jeopardy.

FIND ISSUES before you BUY!  Let the SELLER fix any issues BEFORE you close the sale.

Are any of the PROPERTY CORNER monuments MISSING? We can show you where the corners are so you'll know the exact location and size of the property you're going to buy. 

Are there any ENCROACHMENTS or OVERLAPS?  Is a wall or fence over the property line?  Or maybe a well or septic tank.  Issues happen -- fix them BEFORE you sell or buy. 

Where are the EASEMENTS & SETBACKS?  This is very important if you're planning on building on the property and are going to apply for a building permit.  It's also important if the house was built over the easement or setback line -- you may have to obtain Easements or Variances from your neighbors, the Homeowners' Association, etc.

What if the SELLER only PROVIDES a DEED?  A Boundary Survey will provide a visual map of the land, set the property corner monuments, and determine if there are any overlaps with deeds and/or Surveys from adjacent properties.  If you're the seller, find out exactly how much property you actually own!

Is a Seller's AFFIDAVIT sufficient in place of Survey?  Is the seller disclosing everything?  Sometimes the seller may not even know there is an issue.  Be safe and get a Survey first!

The title company may not REQUIRE a SURVEY.  But what does the title insurance COVER if there's a SURVEY PROBLEM?  Ask the title company if survey matters are an EXCEPTION.  It's in the buyer's best interest to REQUEST a SURVEY!

The title company may not REQUIRE a SURVEY.  But what does the title insurance COVER if there's a SURVEY PROBLEM?  Ask the title company if survey matters are an EXCEPTION.  It's in the buyer's best interest to REQUEST a SURVEY!

Is the property in the NEW FEMA Flood Zone?  If it is, the insurance company may require that the owner buy Flood Insurance.  We can determine the flood zone.  We can also prepare an Elevation Survey for a FEMA LOMA Map Adjustment if you believe your property is INCORRECTLY listed in the flood zone.

Even Lots in SUBDIVISIONS can have PROBLEMS. It is better to be safe than sorry when purchasing your most expensive asset!
