Take Full Advantage of a Land Survey

Property development companies often build single family houses on large tracts of land, and this makes them important clients for survey companies. Each parcel to be sold must have known physical boundaries, and the developer needs to know exactly where they are before the project begins. Having their property surveyed helps them to see exactly how they can best split the property into home lots, and they can then plan their new community for the best results possible.

While the majority of neighbors get along with each other, there are always some people who want more. They often encroach upon their neighbors’ land by building fences or clearing land that does not belong to them. The best legal remedy for this is to hire a surveyor to establish accurate physical property boundaries, and this information can be taken to the neighbor or the court if necessary.

Road widening has become an important issue as traffic increases, and surveyors are often seen before these projects begin. Their work will help determine the actual width of the new road, and it will also establish how much property is being taken away from adjoining properties when the road is built. Once the information is filed with local government, residents and businesses whose land is diminished will find their property tax bills have become smaller.

All across every community, there are permanent markers used by surveyors. These are known as specified locations or spots, and they are the basis of measuring. Each parcel of property is defined in relation to these markers, so the surveyors are able to give an accurate physical location for each property boundary. Without them, surveyors would not be able to do their work as quickly and accurately as necessary.

Land boundaries have always been important to those who own a parcel of land, and they have increased in value as the world becomes more crowded. People now live in close proximity, and they want to be assured no one will take their land by building a fence or building without their consent. Large developments have become the norm, and developers must have accurate knowledge of the property to place the buildings or divide it into lots. Surveyors are responsible for ensuring the owners of any property know the actual physical location of what they own, and they provide them with updated markers so they can continue to see the true boundaries of it.

How Does A Land Survey Help Land Owners?

Land surveying is quite important when you own land, but you must understand how it benefits you in this situation. A land survey is a report on the status of your land, and you must ask for reports that detail needed information for your land. This article explains how you may use a survey to resolve quite a few problems related to any owned property.

#1: Land Disputes Erupt With Proper Surveys


A land dispute often occurs when there are quite a few people arguing over their perception of the value of land or its size. The survey reveals the proper boundaries for the property, reveals the value of the property, and the owner may retain a report showing the true perimeter of the property. The competition may cry quite a lot about the way your land is positioned, but the survey tells you the truth.

#2: Royalty Losses

Royalties are lost when your rivals are not within the bounds of their property, but they will howl to the moon that you are not the rightful owner of land they value. You must ensure you have a land survey to find the true boundary of each property. You may submit the property map when you are selling the land rights to an outside firm, and you may keep your copy of the report as proof.

#3: Violation Of The Law

You may uncover hidden violations of the law that you must resolve, or you may prove the unlawful deeds have occurred on the other side of your property line. You are showing that you are in compliance with the law, and are making an effort to solve the problem.
