Residential Land Surveying in Briarcliff Manor, NY
A fully qualified and licensed land surveyor can save homeowners just like you time, money, headaches, effort, and legal trouble. Here are some of the services that land surveyors perform that can make homeownership and neighbor relations better.
Identifying Land Boundaries
This is probably the most common reason. Knowing the legal boundaries of occupancy or possession is vital before you embark on a fence-building project, adding a gazebo, or even cementing your driveway.
If your property is close to alleys or streets, getting a boundary line certification lets you know exactly where your property ends. Most surveys clearly state that there are no issues involving your property and the adjacent property.
There may be old arrangements that allow your neighbor to cross part of your property if it blocks their access to the street. This agreement is called easement and it will appear in your land survey as well as being on the public record.
Ensure Your Add-ons Are Legal
A land survey will ensure that your home improvement, add-ons, and changes you make to your property are legal. Many municipalities around Briarcliff Manor have rules and regulations based on a structure’s height, bulk, dimensions, and more.
Scalice Works with Title Companies
Land surveys are a vital component of the due diligence a title company does when looking at a property. Too often the seller of the property provides an old survey during the transaction process, which more times than not is outdated. The lack of an updated land survey can cause the buyer all sorts of headaches down the road as municipal laws are known to change over the course of a few years.
While obtaining a current land survey probably seems like one more thing to do added to a list of a hundred other things for title companies to do before closing, it is a critical document that will save you a lot of trouble later on. An updated land survey protects the lender and the property owner from boundary discrepancies, building projects encroaching onto a neighbor’s land or too close to the road, solving land disputes, and much more.
