Our services are recommended when:
You may want to provide your buyer with an up-to-date survey of your property in order to:
- Improve your buyer confidence in the purchase
- Help your buyer to register the transaction at the county clerk’s office
- Verify to your buyer the size and extent of the property, which can help enable the ability to make mortgage paymets
- Avoid later legal disputes arising from out-of-date property description
Its important to know what you’re getting. A map made by a licensed land surveyor can define what you’ve purchased. We undertake the necessary research, survey the property and prepare a survey map that will reveal:
- If other people are entitled to partial use of your property through easements for utilities or rights-of-way.
- Whether your land encompasses fences, trees, buildings, gardens, embankments, driveways, walkways, swimming pools, house additions and other property
- If your deed describes your property accurately
- Any encroachments or other irregularities that might be the source of later legal disputes.
- In addition, we can mark the exact corners of your site with survey monuments.
It is critical to protect your investment by making sure you are building on you own property.
A dislocated fence, driveway or carport can cause legal problems and extra construction costs. Before you build, let us determine your property boundaries, replacing missing stakes if necessary. Allowing us to mark the location of your building on site before construction begins will also ensure that you meet setback requirements and other restrictions enforced by the municipal zoning laws. Failure to comply with zoning By-Laws could result in the later loss of a sale if the purchasers have an up-to-date survey done. Mortgage lenders generally do not advance money until zoning law infringements are cleared up.
