How Can I Get a Survey of the Property?

If you rely upon an old survey, without the permission of the surveyor, the surveyor cannot be held liable to the new owner for inaccuracies in the survey. You may be able to obtain an old survey from the city or county, but the liability is yours. The previous owner could have installed a new septic system, or recorded an easement since the last survey, who knows?!

Surveying is the science or art of making measurements to determine and/or establish the position of points above, on, or beneath the surface of the earth.


 

What does a survey show?

  • It identifies and locates a parcel of land
     
  • It identifies and locates the boundaries of a parcel of land
     
  • It identifies gaps and overlaps
     
  • It determines accretions and relictions
     
  • It determines the exact location of buildings and structures on the land
     
  • It determines the exact dimension of the parcel of land
     
  • It can serve as the basis of “air rights” or “air space property”
     
  • It determines the location of specific monuments or topographical features
     
  • It shows access
     
  • Waterfront. Have creeks, rivers, streams, or beaches moved? Does the property extend to a lake’s high water mark?
     
  • Setbacks. The survey will be used to determine if the structure violates any county or city setback requirements.
     
  • Acreage. What is the total acreage?
     
  • Utilities. They survey will show electrical, sewer, telephone or other private or public rights of way or easements. Also, locations of wells and/or septic systems are usually located
     
  • Roads and Rights of Way. Private and/or public rights of way are located.
