BOUNDARY (PROPERTY LINE) SURVEYS
The first part of surveying is understanding the legal limits of a property. On every survey, we research the recorded Bearings & Distances on the Deed of the Parcel in the Circuit Court Records. We will ask for a Title Report and Plat (If Available) to supplement our research.
Next, we will go out to the site to look for monumented property corners. If there aren't enough to confirm the location of the parcel lines with the recorded deed, we will need to expand our survey to the surrounding properties and sometimes the entire subdivision. This is where an additional expense will be incurred. Our Licensed Surveyor will need to expand the boundary survey until enough evidence is found to mark the official limits of your parcel.
After the Boundary Survey, the next step will be a Topographic Survey.
