Residential Land Surveying in the Town of Southold, NY
There are a lot of reasons you as a homeowner should invest in a land survey for your Southold property. Perhaps the biggest and maybe the most obvious reason is that it states the location and existence of your property in writing. It shows your land and home in relation to other properties adjacent to yours. It shows how your physical improvements and add-ons are situated in relation to the property lines.
Land surveys are often the only source of obtaining and certifying necessary information about a structure (i.e. your house) and a property. Finally, it clearly highlights discrepancies between property lines and boundaries, giving you clear answers of where you can and cannot build that fence, wall, or addition. It also identifies issues involving actual occupation or use and the description of record.
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Using an outdated property survey presents a host of potential problems, such as disputes with neighbors over that fence you want to add that can erupt into serious and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 There are enough cautionary tales out there of property owners who used an outdated survey and thought they were in compliance when starting a home improvement project only to find that the municipal lines had changed.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.
