Reasons Why You Should Hire a Land Surveyor

Land Surveying being done

Many people looking to buy a home or have an addition put on to their home overlook the need for a land surveyor to come out before they purchase land or make changes. It’s important to know where the property lines are, so that you won’t have any problems in the future.

Here is a List of Reasons:

Property Lines – Determining your property lines can help in the future if you’re looking to build a fence around your property or you are building a shed, adding on to your house, or doing landscaping to your yard.

Bodies of Water – There could be a pond, river, creek, stream, or even a small lake attached to your property. Getting a land surveyor to come out and determine if this body of water lies on your property is a good idea just in case you were looking to use this body of water for any number of things.

Trees – Let’s say you’d like to remove a tree on your property, but you aren’t quite sure if the tree is completely on your property. It is sometimes difficult to tell because maybe the house was built, but the owner planted a tree not quite on the property. This can be a problem but can be solved with communication with your neighbor and a land surveyor.

Wires, Pipes, Covers, etc. – Any water, electric, gas, telephone wires, drains, cables, covers, and poles that are underground can be reported by the surveyor if the information is given to them by the utility companies. This information can help if the utility company has the right to use a portion of your property for upkeep. Also, knowing where everything lies underground will help in the future if you’re doing any construction.
