2 Main Principles behind Surveying You Need to Know When Purchasing Property

If you want to buy some land, you need to understand how surveying works. Surveying is the science of mapping out three-dimensional space in the most accurate way possible. Surveying is used to established the boundaries of property lines and for legal documents.

Surveyors Are Licensed Professionals

Surveyors are licensed professionals who have to pass state certification exams in order to become a surveyor. In most states, a board of engineers and land surveyors create and issue the test as well as the license for professional land surveyors. Professional land surveyors are also usually required to take a specific number of hours of professional development each year in order to stay on top of the changes in their craft.

When you hire a surveyor to survey your land for you, be sure to ask to see his or her license. You can check your surveyor's license number with the corresponding state department to make sure that the license is valid.

Surveyors Protect Your Investment

A survey of the property that you want to purchase helps protect the investment that you are making. When you have the property surveyed, the surveyor will verify the lines of the property to make sure that you are getting the property that you think you are getting. A surveyor can also leave marks so that you later know the boundaries of your property; this is particularly helpful for large plots of land.

A surveyor can research any easements on the land and let you know if anyone is encroaching on your land or if any structures on the land you want to purchase are actually encroaching on someone else's land.

A surveyor can also map out the structures on the property and make sure that those structures are in compliance with the permits and permissions that have been granted for your property. For example, a surveyor could find that a shed on your potential property was illegally constructed or that an addition to the house was never approved.

This information can help protect any investment that you make. You may not want to purchase a property that has an illegal structure that you will need to tear down. Or you may be okay with tearing down an illegal structure if you get a discount on the property. Having the property surveyed will let you learn the property's boundaries, and you'll also learn about any issues with the land.

Before you purchase any piece of property, you are going to want to hire a professionally licensed surveyor to complete boundary surveying of the land to ensure that everything is set up correctly and legally.
