Commercial Land Surveying can be a complicated business, and for that reason there are quite a few misconceptions about what it is and why it is needed. To help out, we have debunked five of the most common surveying myths:
It is true that all cities, towns or municipalities have mapped out all properties for tax purposes. However, this does not guarantee that the commercial property has been previously surveyed. Furthermore, even if it has, there is no guarantee the survey is accurate. With the advancements of technology in land surveying, only an up-to-date survey will guarantee accuracy of the proper boundary marks of your property.
Although survey stakes may be present on what you think is the proper property line; it could be quite possible that the past survey stakes may not be intended for marking your property line. Therefore, it is recommended to have a licensed Professional Surveyor determine where the property line begins and ends.
This is not always the case. Often, previous property owners will utilize tree lines and other physical structures to connect the fence line to cut down on cost during installation. Therefore, the only way to truly know the correct property line is to have a professional survey performed on the property.
Property is often one of the largest investments anyone can make in one’s lifetime. Therefore, preserving that investment often plays an important role in a commercial real estate transaction such as insurance, maintenance, etc. However, most people don’t often think of surveys as an investment in your property; when the truth of the matter is, not having a proper survey on your property can cost you thousands of dollars.
Property encroaching is a common issue within the survey industry. This issue can incur on both your end and or the adjacent property without a property boundary survey. Which is why investing is a professional commercial property survey is essential for preserving your property and its value.
