Residential Land Surveying in Manhasset, 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
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often the seller of the property provides an old survey during the transaction process, which more times than not is outdated.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.
