Why Should I Hire a Land Surveyor?

If you consider your house and land among your largest assets, then protecting them is likely a top priority.  When selling our buying land, knowing as much as possible about the property is key.

A survey will provide you with the extent and a detailed description of the property, without which you risk both your investment and friendly neighbors.  The simple addition of a fence can be the cause of expensive litigation and much ill will if you are unfamiliar with the boundaries of your land, and a small distance can make a big difference.

Only a licensed surveyor can provide you with this information, and in turn can be your greatest assurance.  In cases of dispute – among neighbors, municipal agencies, and contractors – your surveyor is an expert witness and assumes full professional responsibility for the accuracy of your survey.

The cost of the survey as a percentage of your total investment can be a small and reasonable price to pay for legal standing and peace of mind.
