When do I Need a Land Survey?
Avoid Lawsuits Or Unnecessary Expenses
In general, a survey should be made before purchasing real property, when dividing any parcel of land for sale or when adjusting existing parcel boundaries (in conformance with state laws and local ordinances), and prior to the construction of any improvements on property in which you have an interest. Employing the services of a land surveyor can help property owners avoid lawsuits or unnecessary expenses relating to land ownership or a potential land purchase.
What Does a Land Surveyor do?
Let Us Recommend A Survey
A Land Surveyor will not tell you what you own. It is your responsibility to furnish the surveyor with a legal description, current title report, or policy concerning the parcel that you want surveyed. You should explain to the surveyor why you want the survey made. The surveyor can then recommend the type of survey required.

How Much Does a Land Survey Cost?
Your property survey cost may vary depending on the level of surveying required.
We are happy to provide a free estimate of your needed survey work. To provide an accurate estimate, we need to know the following:
- The type of survey needed. You may only need to find a boundary line to put up a fence, or you may be constructing a commercial building or subdivision.
- Records search. Title and deed problems are common. Vague, incomplete and often contradictory legal descriptions and land records may require additional time to unravel.
- Past monumentation (or lack thereof). Existing evidence such as iron, wood or stone monuments, old fences and occupation lines help us determine the cost of the survey.
- Terrain. A level parcel of land is easier to survey than a steep one. Swampy property or property along a river or stream may complicate the survey.
- Vegetation on property. Heavy brush, small trees and branches may need to be cleared to allow a line of site for the survey crew.
- Accessibility to property. The travel distance to and from your property and whether there are accessible roads into and around the property needs to be known.
