Residential Land Surveying in the Town of Riverhead, 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 Riverhead have rules and regulations based on a structure’s height, bulk, dimensions, and more.
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Using an outdated property survey presents a host of potential problems, such as disputes with neighbors over that fence you want to add that can erupt into serious and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 There are enough cautionary tales out there of property owners who used an outdated survey and thought they were in compliance when starting a home improvement project only to find that the municipal lines had changed.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.
