Residential Land Surveying in Cortlandt Manor, NY
A property survey defines the lines of your land. It clarifies the size, shape, and where your property begins and ends. Here are some of the other ways that having a land survey done on your property will save you time, effort, resources, and most of all, money in the long run. For example, laws in your municipality may have changed for a variety of reasons. This means the placement of your shed or fence might have been on your side of the property line a year ago but is now on your neighbor’s side or too close to the road.
An updated land survey will give you peace of mind that you’re still in compliance. A land surveyor checks the following areas to ensure your land is in good legal standing:
- The boundaries of your land
- The placement of structures (sheds, pool houses, etc.) on the land
- Easements and entrances
- Natural features, such as trees, streams, etc. as well as manmade parts like swimming pools.
Scalice Works with Title Companies
Title companies can protect property owners and themselves from serious legal infringement by insisting that all buyers obtain an updated land survey. Unfortunately, it’s too common that buyers don’t get a new survey done because it adds to the seemingly endless mound of bills. While getting a quality land survey by a licensed surveyor will add to the buyer’s expenses, it will spare them massive headaches in the future.
Using an outdated property survey presents a host of potential problems, such as disputes with neighbors over that fence you want to add that can erupt into serious and drawn-out legal battles. There are enough cautionary tales out there of property owners who used an outdated survey and thought they were in compliance when starting a home improvement project only to find that the municipal lines had changed. Give your clients peace of mind at closing that every step has been taken to avoid issues in the future by insisting on a new land survey.
