Boundary Surveys

A Boundary Survey is usually ordered in anticipation of a real estate closing. The purchaser, generally at the lender’s request, stipulates if the survey is required to meet ALTA (American Land Title Association) / NSPS  (National Society of Professional Surveyors) specifications or State of Florida Standards of Practice.  The standards specified determine the level of detail and accuracy that the surveyor will be required to obtain and reflect on the survey drawings.

Marking Property Lines 

A Boundary Survey is utilized to clearly mark property lines and define the improvements on the land to be purchased.  Property lines and improvements situated on the property are located and depicted on the survey drawing.  Improvements that witness the property lines are located and tied by dimension to the property lines, to determine if the improvements encroach onto an adjoining property or government setbacks. 

Working in Unison

During the process of preparing a Boundary Survey, the surveyor works in unison with the purchaser’s attorney and title company to ensure that exceptions (easements, access, zoning, etc.) listed in the title policy are accurately plotted on the survey drawing. 

Finding Defects

The surveyor is often called on to certify to the lender the correct square footage, and that the property is free of certain defects, such as encroachment of improvements and the number and type of parking spaces.
