Land Development Survey Services Include

 

Boundary Surveys -   

To locate the property corners and boundary lines or a given parcel of land. This involves record and field research, measurements and computations to set boundary lines in accordance with state law. Easement lines and encroachments may also be located in this type of survey. 


Corner Recover/Verification - 

To recover and verify the position of property corner monuments that were established by a previous survey. The position and character of the existing monuments (iron rebar with plastic cap stamped with the license number of the surveyor who set the mark) must be confirmed with the corresponding Map of Survey, or Subdivision Plat.


Construction Staking - 

To interpret construction plans and mark the location of new structures. Construction staking is performed according to engineering plans to guide the proposed improvements of the property,


Topographic Surveys - 

To locate topographic features of the land-natural and man made; for example; buildings, improvements, fences, elevations, trees, streams, and contours (e.g., lines of equal elevation). This type of survey may be required by a governmental agency or may be used by engineers and/or architects for design of site improvements or developments. It is also an excellent management for large tracts of forestland. Such a survey is not necessarily limited by property boundaries. 


Land Division Surveys -

To subdivide or partition a tract or land into smaller parcels, showing property corners and survey data on a map in conformance with local and state law. 


ALTA Surveys -

Such surveys typically show the relationships of existing improvements on a parcel of land relative to the boundaries as defined on the deed. (A.L.T.A or American Land Title surveys may require a boundary survey)


Elevation Certificates -

To certify building elevations if the building is located in the Special Flood Hazzard Area in order to determine the proper flood insurance premium rate for a building or to support a request of a Letter of Map Ammendment (LOMA)
