WHY SHOULD I HIRE A SURVEYOR?
Owning land is a big part of what we imagine when we think of “The American Dream”. For most of us, purchasing real estate is the single largest investment we’ll make in our lifetime. Buyers do their due diligence and ensure their new house is safe and sound, but often have no idea where their property lines actually are. In one instance, the property a client thought he purchased was completely different than what was described on his deed. (Imagine his surprise when we discovered he had put a beautiful house on someone else’s land!) It was a costly mistake that could have been easily avoided by consulting with a Professional Land Surveyor prior to purchasing the land.
A boundary survey will identify encroachments that may not appear on disclosure statements at closing- whether the seller knows about them or not. Resist the urge to view a land survey as an unnecessary and avoidable closing expense. If there’s an issue with your new land purchase, it’s always better to find out ahead of time. Also, with a boundary survey plat in your possession, you will have an official record and may be able to use it to defend your property rights should an issue come up with adjacent landowners. If you’re considering purchasing a property, contact your agent or closing officer and tell them you want a boundary survey.
Here are a few of the most common questions surveyors are asked:
– How do I read my legal description?
– How do I know if there are any encroachments on my land?
– What is an easement and how does it affect me?
– Is my house in a floodplain?
– Isn’t a mortgage inspection the same as a boundary survey?
– Can I be held liable for what happens on land I didn’t realize I owned?
Foresight Land Surveying can help make sense of the issues regarding your land’s boundaries. If you wait until there’s a problem before you call a surveyor, it may already be too late.

If you don’t know exactly where your boundary lines and property corners are, call Foresight Land Surveying.
