A Land Surveyor establishes your property boundaries, ground contours, and existing features which directly affect project design. Once a new project is conceived, a contractor and/or architect needs us to take the first step by providing them measurements and details of a property necessary for construction.
Whether you are buying or selling, or going to improve your property, your architects and contractors will most likely want yo have a survey to base their plans off of. Some towns will even require that you have a recently updated survey. It's also of benefit for you to have your land surveyed as a document for your property investment and to prevent future land disputes.
A licensed land surveyor can provide physical markers at your property corners and along the property lines.
A Title Survey is a survey map prepared by a licensed land surveyor registered in the state of New York, which depicts the mathematical and physical features of a parcel of land with relation to map lines, deeds of record, and /or other pertinent reference data base upon an actual field survey. (New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors)
We take a three to four step approach, depending on the property. We will begin with research about the property, then do some on-site "field location" work and bring these results back to our office for computation and drafting. If the project calls for it, we will then set property or construction markers if required.
Land surveyors will not only define and locate property lines, they will also measure lay of the land to give an accurate location of objects on the property, both natural and man made.
