The Best Ohio Land Surveyors You’ll Find
Searching for land surveyors in your area and wondering who to trust? Scalice is a land survey company with years of experience in the rules, regulations, and skills required to conduct accurate Ohio land surveys.
Unlike other companies, we’ll provide you with the digital and physical tools needed to carry out your plans. We’ll provide you with digital imaging so you can visualize your plot of land and see where its boundaries lie.
With an Ohio land survey, you’ll receive a plot’s precise measurements and dimensions, so you can place your buildings while remaining compliant with local regulations. By providing you with a physical and digital map detailing utility placement, topography, and more, you can ensure that your construction goes according to plan.
We go further than our competitors by offering an Ohio property survey that delves into the environmental elements you must be aware of. We’ll provide details on the aspects you’ll need to modify to allow construction to go ahead and those that won’t.
Another reason to opt for a comprehensive survey from Scalice is that parts of your lot may qualify under the easements rule. These are the parts of your Ohio property that others can modify and protect. Ordering an Ohio land survey ensures that you don’t commit any accidental violations.
After we’ve finished assessing your lot, you’ll receive a physical and digital copy of the complete survey. With your documents to hand, you’ll be able to access the vital information that enables you to see the features, boundaries, measurements, and more.
These surveys can also be stored with your local municipality for reference in the event of any future disputes.
Landowners in Ohio need to know that there’s not just a single type of land survey you can order. If you’ve already researched land survey companies nearby, you’ve likely already come across various kinds of Ohio property surveys.
Some of the options available from Scalice for Ohio landowners include:
- Boundary surveys
- Construction layout
- Topographical surveys
- ALTA/NSPS land title surveys
- Drone surveying
Managing large tracts of land can be incredibly challenging. Our surveyors can separate larger plots into smaller subdivisions for easier management. Get in contact with the Scalice team for a case consultation, and we’ll discuss your plans and which surveys will best suit your needs.
Know How Much Your Property is Worth
Once you’ve ordered an Ohio property survey, your survey will remain valid for at least the next decade. Short of something significant occurring, the lay of the land is unlikely to shift significantly during this period.
However, if you’re conducting a re-landscaping project, transforming your lot, or adding new structures, you’ll need to find out what the latest value of your land is. This is something your original land survey isn’t going to reflect.
Our team can schedule a new survey after you’ve finished with your construction and re-landscaping work to provide you with an accurate value of how much your property is worth.
We can keep track of your lot well into the future so you can manage your portfolio better.

Can you buy a house in Ohio without a survey?
There are no laws anywhere in Ohio that state you need to conduct a survey to make a purchase, obtain a mortgage, or start a construction project. However, the reality is far different. Any responsible party will always require a land survey. Buyers want the whole story, and lenders need an accurate picture of the risk they accept.
Land surveys aren’t a legal requirement in Ohio, but the chances are you’ll be ordered to get one anyway for a project to begin or for a transaction to be completed.
If you’re unsure whether a land survey is required, get in touch with Scalice, and we’ll be able to advise you on the legal and insurance risks of not investing in a survey.
How can I access old land surveys in Ohio?
Older land surveys are a window into the story of a lot. They can indicate when the land changed, and properties were erected/demolished.
There are three ways you can obtain an old land survey in Ohio. You can ask the local building department for any surveying records for a particular lot on file. You can also approach the land recorder’s office for a certified copy.
Finally, some previous owners may have already shared surveying records with the authorities or their tax attorney. You can begin your search for a previous land survey by contacting the area tax assessor.
Getting a copy of a previous land survey will enable you to compare your latest survey with it to see how things have changed or whether there are any potential miscalculations.
The History of Surveying Land in Ohio
It was the passage of the Northwest Ordinance in 1787 that set down the rules for how the United States would expand westward, building up from its original 13 states along the way. It was particularly poignant for Ohio because it established states north of the Ohio river.
Surveyors were responsible for outlining this uncharted wilderness into saleable tracts of land. They created townships consisting of six square miles and sent back glowing reports to cities like New York, Philadelphia, and Charleston for investors to browse.
Many surveyors may have never personally seen this land, nor would investors ever see the land they owned. The surveyors of the time were land marketers, aiming to sell this wilderness for the highest possible price.
Times have changed since then. Searching for a “residential land surveyor near me” won’t reveal a marketer but a highly skilled professional. We’re bound by law and ethics to provide you with the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
To get the full story on the land your own in Ohio, Scalice is there to provide you with accurate land and property surveys. From rudimentary tools to assess land to today’s advanced techniques, we can survey your land in a fraction of the time of the first surveyors.
