    Why do I need a survey?

    Ensures Marketability:

    It is important to know exactly where your home sits on the lot. It is possible that a mistake was made during the building process, which placed the home in a wrong location such as into the neighbor’s yard or within areas prohibited by building setbacks or easements. This would create serious issues with obtaining a title, and prevent the home from being sellable unless it was picked up and moved within the legal boundaries of the intended property or until additional land or easements were purchased.

    Building Restrictions:

    If you have found a home that you plan to add on to later with a large deck or extra room, a survey can show you where potential building restrictions are on the site. Building setback lines may prevent you from being able to build exactly where you prefer. Additionally, any access or utility easements could prevent you from being able to build a fence or shed in certain areas of your property. Any and all restrictions that are shown on the primary recorded plat can be included on your survey.

    Encroachments:

    Has the neighbor built a fence that extends onto the property you own or want to buy? A Physical Survey will show if anyone has pushed beyond their boundaries and into your yard. Encroachment problems are sometimes resolved with a simple conversation, but other times these problems must be taken to court. Because of this, potential home buyers are advised to have a land survey done to ensure valuable improvements fall within their respective boundaries.
