A Boundary Survey locates and establishes the lines and corners of a parcel of land as legally described in a deed or document of record.
It will also indicate the extent of any easements or encroachments and may show the property's limitations by state or local regulations..
This survey involves field and office work, locating or setting boundary corners, and preparing a plot of survey document showing all improvements and the relationship of possession lines (occupied lines) to record or title lines.
A boundary survey is an essential component of pre-construction due diligence since it establishes the perimeter of a property related to a site's legal description.
When finished, the survey will show a plan of the property, written descriptions of any buildings and a report defining the boundaries and explaining the judgment. The limits are marked depending on prior contracts between the buyer and the professional land surveyor.
