Residential Land Surveying in Shelter Island, NY
There are a lot of ways having an up-to-date land survey can help you. From defining boundary lines to clarifying easements, you really never know when they’ll come in handy. But for people living in Shelter Island and the rest of Long Island, the most common reason they inquire about a land survey is for the add-on projects they want on their property.
Having an accurate land survey can help inform you of the approved size and depth of your planned inground pool is legal and if there are underground wires close by. An updated survey can help you decide how tall to make your gazebo or if the location of your proposed deck comes too close to a green utility box. In a nutshell, having a precise land survey in Shelter Island not only protects builders from harm, but it also protects you from making costly mistakes when it comes to adding new parts to your home and property.
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often the seller of the property provides an old survey during the transaction process, which more times than not is outdated.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.
