For Larger Home Projects:

For larger home projects such as building a fence, you’ll most definitely need to acquire a land survey because of the issue with property lines. If you’re building an addition onto your house, a land survey will be necessary to determine that the structure or expansion does not encroach your neighbor’s property. 

A land survey for these types of projects involves building codes and public safety, which means building codes involving electricity, plumbing, and building safety play a major role into the project. It’s beneficial for yourself to not have to move a shed after it’s built due to technicality issues or disputes.
