Three Advantages of Survey Maps

3-advantages-survey-mapsA home is probably the biggest investment you will ever make. Whether you are purchasing land to build a home or buying a property with an existing residence, it is necessary to ensure the integrity of the property lines. Hiring a professional survey company will give you the confidence you need to protect your investment. A survey map can determine:

The Location of the Home
This information is often described inaccurately on the contract. This survey accurately tells you where the home is on the property you are looking to purchase.

Precise Locations of Improvements to the Property
Garages and gardens may legally be on a neighbor’s property. A survey can indicate issues prior to potentially costly legal disagreements.

Locations of All Property Lines, Easements and Rights-Of Way
The map will show the dimensions and lines of the property described in the contract of purchase. This will include any variances of length, area and angles. Your attorney can review the property survey and ensure compliance with zoning laws, too.

A survey map is an important tool to protect the huge investment of a home. A professional survey company will complete a thorough evaluation of the land, residence and improvements to determine compliance with your contract.
