Whether you intend to purchase new land or you have plans to build on property you already own, there are several reasons why you may need a land survey. But just why is getting one so important? And during which step of the construction process do you actually need one? We’re here to answer your questions and provide you with all of the details you need to know about land surveys.
First of all, there are many reasons why getting a land survey may not only be beneficial, but may actually be a requirement for moving forward with your plans. Some of the reasons why you may need one include when you are trying to decide if a new project will encroach on someone else’s property, when you need to determine whether or not a building is in a flood hazard area, and when you are preparing a subdivision layout.
Of course, these are just some of the many reasons why a land survey may be needed. But how do you know when to get one? Well, in general it is a good idea to contact a land surveyor like us before any land titles are transferred between the parties involved. It should also be done before any land is subdivided, and before construction begins on any land that is nearby roads or existing buildings.
These are just some simple guidelines to follow to help you determine when you may need a land survey. For more information about when and why to get one for your property, give us a call today!
