When Land is Transferred, Land Surveying Should be Done

Land surveying before transferring land

When a transfer of land is taken place, it is always good to hire a land surveyor in case of any changes were made to the land. A new survey done by a licensed professional clearly outlines the current legal description of the land.

What does a land survey cover?

Land surveys define the boundaries based on the public record. Then, the surveyor maps out the improvements on the property within the boundaries.

Changes: Anything can change during the time of the two surveys including a new building being built on the property, a neighbor adding something to their property that crosses the boundary line, etc.

Why it’s Beneficial?

It’s extremely beneficial because you will have the new and updated land survey done for when you would like to do things to your property. You will know the details, so that if you would like to build an addition on to your home, or a shed in the backyard. An encroachment, such as a neighbor’s fence, wall, or building can cause bigger problems in the future.

If you’d like to put up a fence, you’ll know where your property line is located. The biggest benefit to a land survey is preventing potential disputes with your neighbor. There could be property line or corner disputes that restrain you or your neighbor from making any changes to the property.

The land survey will also protect the investment because it will determine property dimensions, size and location of the home, as well as driveways.
