Must I Obtain a Licensed Surveyor?


According to Ohio State law, only surveys made by licensed and registered Ohio Land Surveyors are legal. Only registered Land Surveyors have completed the academic requirements and practical training before licensing. Only registered Land Surveyors are required to maintain the necessary theoretical, practical, and ethical standards set by legislation.  Similar laws exist in many other states, and are in place to protect landowners, lending institutions, insurers, builders, and governments.

“I have worked closely with Garcia Surveyors, Inc. for many years. In my opinion, they are one of the most knowledgeable and qualified firms in the area. I highly recommend them for any survey work you may require.” — C.E. Lulfs, P.E.,P.S. - Director of Public Works - City of Napoleon
