How Are Boundary Surveys Done?
The residential boundary survey process starts by performing research in the county where the deed is registered. A property surveyor reviews historical land records for the specific plot as well as the surrounding plots. The surveyor may need to consult with municipal officers to ensure accurate boundary line reporting.
A land surveyor consults with local municipalities to gather accurate information about the deed. Once complete, a survey tech will conduct field research. Boundary surveyors explore the plot, mark property corners, and gather additional measurements.
After the research is complete, the surveying team can analyze the collected data and generate a detailed property design. It includes acreage, encroachments, and easements. The finalized survey is drafted, sealed, and stamped.
