  • When you are selling land, a surveyor will locate and identify the piece of ground that you intend to sell.
  • A surveyor is needed when land is not clearly defined by plat or legal description.
  • Before land is divided by deed, will, or by a court.
  • When a money-lending agency requires a survey, i.e. for mortgage purposes.
  • Before a building, house, or fence is built close to an indefinite property line.
  • Before a lot is conveyed from a larger tract and the lot has not been surveyed.
  • Before timber is to be cut near a property line.
  • When purchasing title insurance.
  • When a line or corner location is unknown or in dispute.
  • When you believe someone is encroaching on your land
