Title/Mortgage surveys for real estate closing.
A mortgage survey is almost always required by a lender to confirm that the property being purchased is free of any above ground encroachments. All improvements within the boundaries are shown, as well as the boundary lines to display the property’s limits. Title companies, attorneys, or prospective home buyers can be responsible for ordering a survey depending on the circumstances.
Boundary location surveys for general permitting and property disputes.
Boundary location surveys are frequently necessary to confirm the location of property lines on architectural projects. Identifying the location of property lines is crucial and requires serious consideration of subdivisions of land, design and development of improvements near boundary lines.
FEMA Elevation certificates for flood insurance.
An elevation certificate can be obtained to purchase flood insurance. The certificate is usually ordered at the same time as the title/mortgage survey. In addition, an elevation certificate could be required to obtain building permits for certain residential and/or commercial improvement projects.
Property Line Stakeout Surveys
A survey that marks the boundaries of your property for verification of your legal property description found in your DEED, placement of improvements near the boundary, or to resolve property disputes with neighbors.
This type of survey describes the topography of your land to locate the physical features that exist on site, including natural features such as trees and streams, and man-made features like buildings, roads, manholes, etc. The resulting plans will include all these details, as well as vertical information (terrain elevation) with the relative heights of the ground and other identified features.
Final Surveys For Certificate of Occupancy (CO)
This survey verifies that your residential/commercial construction or improvements are in compliance with your plans and with local regulations, helping you obtain a Certificate of Occupancy (CO).
A survey used to split or merge your existing parcel(s) of land. The decree and consequences for splitting lots can be vastly different depending on the governing jurisdiction of municipality, and it’s important that the surveyor know these rules, so the proceeding plans will be accepted.
