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.

“We have contracted Garcia Surveyors for numerous projects over the past several years. Throughout these projects they have worked closely with our staff and were very responsive to our requests. I recommend Garcia Surveyors.” — M. P. Choma, P.E. – Assistant Sanitary Engineer – Lucas County Ohio
