Boundary & Topographic Surveys

Boundary Surveys

Public and private clients often look to our boundary surveying services as a starting point for their project. Boundary surveys are needed for various reasons, including:

  • To create a new description for the transferring title to a new parcel of land.
  • To retrace an existing property description with unknown boundaries.
  • To ensure building setback requirements comply with local building codes during building construction.
  • To meet a lending institution’s request, often for older property descriptions.

Types of Boundary Surveying services.

  • Court exhibits
  • Corner records
  • Dispute resolutions
  • Easements
  • Expert testimony
  • Land title research
  • Record of survey
  • Site planning
