The Benefits of a Survey Plan

Most people have gone through the headache of both buying and selling a home. Property ownership is dependent on borders and boundaries because these boundaries help define the extent and value of the property. Without a survey plan, none of these goals can be accomplished. Land surveys do much more than simply communicate boundaries. They also mark aspects of the property such as elevation changes, and other features that cannot be gleaned by simply looking at the physical property. Land surveys help put the information that once existed in multiple locations all in one place. Not long ago, this information existed only on documents with poorly drawn or wordy descriptions of borders with written documents explaining exactly what was in the property in difficult legal jargon. Today, this information is easy to understand and included entirely in a land survey.

While the most important benefit of a survey plan is that it clearly marks and defines legal boundaries, it actually does much more than this. With the boundaries marked people can easily calculate both the size and shape of the property. Land surveys also clearly mark easements and rights of ways. The survey plan allows you to easily calculate how far away you are from various fences, houses, utilities, and sheds. Any physical markings or other buildings on the property are clearly marked in the survey plan. Land surveys also indicate very clear elevation changes, foliage, sewer grates, wells, and other important topographical features. Furthermore, survey plans clearly indicate possible property encroachments or other unseen property features. 

It is important to consider using a survey plan whether you are purchasing or selling property. On the purchasing end, use a survey plan to make sure you fully understand what you're about to buy. This ensures you aren't surprised with any features of your new property. On the selling end, it is important to make sure the survey plan is correct. Sometimes parts of your property can change. It is important to make sure any benefits or upgrades you have made appear on the survey plan. This helps to make sure your property's survey plan is accurate. Even if you aren't buying or selling property, use a survey plan when renovating or making an addition to the home. This helps make sure this new upgrade is in the proper location. Finally, use survey plans to help solve boundary disputes. Land surveys leave no doubt about the extent of property. After all, this is its most important purpose.

What Do You Get Out Of A Land Survey

Getting a land survey will tell you a lot about the area, but you still need to make sure that you know why you are getting the survey. A surveyor who comes to look at your plot of land needs to know what you want, and they will give you a lot of information based on what you have asked for. It is very easy for you to get the results you need once you ask for the survey, and you get three major benefits that help everyone.

The survey will tell you the definite lines of your property that you need when you start developing. You cannot under any circumstances just start work without knowing where your land actually begins and ends because there are usually regulations that govern how close you can get to the edge of the line. That is why you need the survey, and that is why you need to be sure that you have seen where the lines are and then pass that on to the construction people.

You also get to see where your line stops so that someone who have a dispute with can see where your property is. They might not know that you have all that area, but they will see it when the job is done. This help that you get from the surveyor tells you instantly what you need to know about the land, and you can settle the dispute right there. 

The surveyor also gives you a chance to learn where the lines of other properties are so that you can negotiate with them. That is important because you have to really think about how you will manage to get all this work done, and then you need to be sure that you have an idea of who is around you in case you want to buy from them or work with them. This information helps you plot a course for the future that you cannot plan any other way.

The surveyor that you are working with will give you a lot of information about the property you are working on. Make sure that you have hired someone who knows what they are doing, and remember that it can be very easy to solve any problems with your land once you have hired them to come help you start plotting your boundaries.
