So your neighbor has the bright idea of building a unique structure in the backyard, but no one is sure where to draw the line. As the first line of defense, the last thing you want is a quarrel with your next-door neighbor.
This is when the help of a professional can come in handy and make the decision process smooth and legal. In this scenario, the middle-man, a building surveyor, is the right call. Reliable builder surveying services around Manhattan NY alleviate the guesswork from homeowners.
A land surveyor’s job is to survey properties for this (other others) very reason. Primarily, a residential land surveyor’s responsibilities include measuring the distance, including angles above and below the surface to get an accurate read of where the property line boundaries lie.
They are also responsible for taking an assessment of the property from a long- and short-distance to be sure they’ve noted any prior property boundary marks. Typically, surveyors will compare their in-person assessment with the data available in the county or city limits, as all properties are accounted for by parcel, and zoning rules take effect.
Land surveyors take in the topography of the land, which will include detailed mapping of the natural structures of an area — think trees, rocks, hills, slopes, and the like. This essential step in the process accounts for dips in the property caused by natural and humanmade changes.
