Your property corners are actually iron rods placed in the ground by the original sub-divider of the property. We will come out to your property and find these iron rods and verify that they are correct according to your deed. Then stakes will be placed along your property lines between the property corners.

Your property and all improvements including but not limited to the house, driveway, decks, sheds, garages, fences, pools, walls, etc. will be located and shown on a plat.

The county or city where your property is located will require a site plan if you are doing any sort of building such as a house, an addition, or a pool. The site plan starts with a boundary survey and may include other items such as topography (elevations or contours) and trees. It all depends on what the county or city your property is located in requires.
This type of survey starts with a boundary survey of the entire tract of land. A lot split divides one tract of land into two tracts or lots. A subdivision on the other hand divides one tract of land into more than two tracts or lots. The survey plat will then need to meet the county or city requirements in order to be approved. Once it is approved, deeds may be written in order to transfer title to another party.

This type of survey is extremely detailed. It provides the lender and title insurance company with the information needed to insure the title to the land.
