Your goal is to make sure the survey is done easily and accurately. These tips will reduce the difficulty and time, and hence the cost, required to complete a survey:
- Provide us with all the legal documents you have, such as a previous survey or a title deed showing the property’s legal description or that of the larger parcel being split.
- Provide any maps of the land, which are especially useful for large parcels.
- Clear debris from lot lines or where lines are to be established.
- Locate and mark the existing boundary pins (sometimes called monuments) with marking paint and/or wood stakes, a good option for those who have a metal detector or can borrow one without cost.
