If you own or want to buy a property, it’s very important that you know where its limits lie. Whether you’re targeting commercial property or private property, disputes may arise if your property doesn’t have any clear boundaries. To prevent that from happening, a professional land surveyor can help establish the boundaries.
What Is a Boundary Survey?
A boundary survey is an essential part of pre-construction due diligence. It establishes the physical boundary lines of a property while defining the property’s corners. In most cases, people perform boundary surveys before building, improving, selling, or buying a piece of land. Land surveyors perform the survey to ensure that measurements are accurate.
The process starts with mapping, marking, and measuring the property’s boundary lines. The professional land surveyor examines the historical records of the property and those of the area around it. This is done to ensure that the owner or the buyer is aware of its limits. The marking can be done with different items, including concrete, pipes, or wooden posts.
What Is the Purpose of a Boundary Survey?
Boundary surveys allow people to know what they own and the neighboring properties. This is because they provide physical markers that identify the limits of the property. Calling a surveyor to conduct a boundary survey can prevent you from finding yourself in boundary disputes with your neighbors.
On top of that, if you want to sell or transfer a portion of your property, the local authorities may require you to conduct boundary surveys. Besides this, the process can make it so you can reassure a prospective buyer who may want to confirm property lines that they’re making the right decision buying your property.
Lastly, if you’re planning to conduct a major home construction, you may need a building permit, which requires a boundary survey. Also, you can use a boundary survey as security for a loan.
