What Is A Property Survey?

Curious about what a property survey is? Then you’ve come to the right place!

A property survey could not only save you a lot of hassles, but it could also save you some money if something isn’t where it’s supposed to be. For some purposes, you may be legally required to get a property survey done, but sometimes it’s simply great peace of mind before you start a new project on your property. Property surveys are legal documents that are beneficial for buyers, sellers, lenders, insurance companies, and also homeowners. 

A standard property survey is a drawing or map of your land which includes boundaries and other specific elements such as easements. Your property survey will be conducted by a trained surveyor and provide you with a detailed overview of your property. If you were planning on remodeling or building an extension, a property survey can reassure you that you’re breaking any laws or regulations. 

Factors that will be included on your property survey usually include: 

  • Property/boundary lines
  • Easements Utilities
  • Elevation levels
  • Improvements
  • Regulation compliance
  • Hazard areas

The most common reason someone would get a property survey is if they were considering buying a home. Some lenders and insurance agents require the buyer to get a property survey completed if one hasn’t recently been completed. It’s a great way to ensure that everything is where it’s supposed to be and mitigate the risks of a problem arising between neighboring properties.
