If you are building on on a piece of land, it’s important to have a foundation location survey conducted by a licensed land surveyor once the foundation is laid. Point to Point Land Surveyors, Inc. has the knowledge and experience to provide these surveys as needed with guaranteed affordability and accuracy.
Foundation location surveys are designed to locate improvements on a property with respect to the property boundary. This survey is not typically combined with a recorded boundary survey because boundary information should already have been recorded on the plat of subdivision. Rather, this survey collects information about the position of a foundation that was poured by a contractor to ensure that it is in the right location and that it is built with the proper setbacks and zoning methods. There are always rules and regulations to follow with regard to foundation placement, and a survey helps ensure that those rules have been met.
A professional land surveyor will typically be called out once the foundation has been poured and cured. The surveyor will take measurements, compare the measurements of the property to those of structure foundation, and make notes about size and location to be recorded in the property description on the deed. These results will also be filed with the relevant permitting agencies so that construction workers can continue with a project once the foundation is poured.
House Site Plans
Once an initial land survey has been performed on a parcel of residential property, the surveyor will draw up a set of house site plans to demonstrate the proposed development of the land. This is a necessary part of the construction process because the plans verify the accuracy of the land parcel measurements and ensure that the proposed building is constructed according to codes and regulations. Point to Point Land Surveyors, Inc. can provide these plans with guaranteed accuracy, on time and on budget.
Why Accuracy Is Critical With House Site Plans
Anytime a building is constructed, even on private land, there are both physical and legal considerations involved, to the point that even the difference of a few inches can make a structure unsafe or in violation of code. In the event that house site plans are not drawn accurately or errors are discovered after a building project is completed, a surveyor must do a correction survey to determine which elements are out of place, whether the build is legally compliant, and what things need to be changed or re-done in order to meet the requirements of the regulating authorities. This can be both complicated and expensive, but it can be easily avoided by hiring an experienced land surveyor to make sure the site plans are drawn accurately the first time.
Residential Boundary Surveys
Before you purchase a piece of residential property, your lender or title company may require a boundary survey to be performed on the land. With our many years of proven experience, Point to Point Land Surveyors, Inc. has the expertise to conduct these boundary surveys thoroughly and accurately to ensure you are protected in any home or land purchase.
What Does A Boundary Survey Entail?
Boundary land surveys are among the most common types of surveys in use by the general public, in which the precise measurements of the boundaries of a piece of land are located or verified. This is actually a bit more complex than simply measuring out the physical boundaries of the land; a skilled land surveyor will also conduct extensive research to ensure the stated boundaries are correct.
The first step of a boundary survey is to review any existing records concerning the property, which may include title certificates, deeds and other papers. The surveyor researches prior boundary surveys, easements and other records that may influence his findings. Most of today’s homes are built on property that was sold after dividing up a larger piece of property; this can make the survey’s job more challenging, especially if this division was not surveyed or recorded properly.
