Importance Of Land Survey

What is Land Survey

Land Survey or simply Survey, is the scientific process of measuring the dimensions of a particular area of the earth’s surface, including its horizontal distances, directions, angles, and elevations. Artificial structures such as buildings and roads may also be shown on the survey. The data from the measurement can also be used to create different kinds of maps, which is why the Land Survey is of different types. 

Types of Land Survey

  •  Topographic Survey Cadastral Survey
  •  Route Survey Geodetic Survey
  •  Engineering Survey As-Built

 Who Needs Land Survey?

Every individual who wants to purchase or sell land. A land survey is also needed by other professionals like Civil Engineers, Architects, Builders, Town planners, etc.

A land survey is a vital document along with the certificate of Occupancy showing land ownership. It also helps to ensure that the constructions done on the land are in the right direction. It helps you to determine the terrain of the land, which then aids in drainage construction. It will also help in ensuring that the deed shown by the seller is the correct size of the property. 

 

 

Other Importances Include:

  • Helping in preparation for construction, in a similar way that you consult an interior designer and structural engineers on building design you need to consult a registered land surveyor to know the potential of the land and also helps to determine the height of points during road construction.
  • It is not possible to measure the plot of new land without the help of a Land Survey as it might lead to inappropriate land measurements. So a proper land survey is necessary as it clearly states property boundaries, which can further help the management teams with appropriate construction plans and will save you from property line trouble and disputes with neighbors.
  • Without a proper land survey, the value of a property can be over or undervalued so there is a necessity for an accurate land survey. If you want to understand fully your worth and purchase based on location, landscape, and hardscape you will need to hire a Registered Land Surveyor.
  • It is necessary to understand the topographical details before purchasing the property. Detection of soil and structural issues, determination of flood-prone areas, and getting an accurate representation of the plot engineers must conduct a land survey. A proper land survey will help you protect from disaster and push back and halt construction.
  • To separate business owners from residential and commercial purposes landowners may want to begin with plot parceling. For proper division of property into the pre-determined section which can be priced and handed over correctly without any inaccuracies, there is a need for a proper land survey.

 

In conclusion, a Land survey helps you in the purchase of land and construction in the right direction. It helps you to decide whether the purchased land is good or bad and whether the land is flood-prone or not. It will also help you to determine if the deed shown by the seller reflects the correct size of the property.
