What is a boundary survey?
A boundary survey is an investigation that requires both field and office efforts to evaluate the boundary of a piece of property, this evaluation is presented to the client as a survey plat prepared by a registered professional land surveyor (RPLS). This type of survey is typically prepared in conjunction with the sale of real property and will reference a title commitment to include any easements or encumbrances shown on the title commitment.
This type of survey is typically prepared in conjunction with the sale of real property and is sometimes called a title survey. A boundary survey, is an investigation that requires both field and office efforts to evaluate the boundary of a property. This evaluation is presented to the client as a survey plat prepared by a registered professional land surveyor (RPLS). In addition to a survey plat, properties that are not described by Lot and Block will require a metes and bounds description to be prepared in conjunction with the plat. A Metes and Bounds description lists the bearings and distances of each property line and references found and set monuments at each corner of a tract. This detailed survey description contains the geometry of a tract and a record of the surveyor’s “footsteps” when the tract was surveyed. As professional land surveyors, we strive to follow the footsteps of the original surveyor to determine the location of property boundaries. Summit has performed boundary surveys for thousands of acres in the San Antonio and New Braunfels areas.
How do I know if I need one?
Great question… When closing on a piece of property the lender will usually want to see a title survey to verify that the improvements (structures, parking lots, etc.) are on the subject property and not encroaching onto an adjacent tract.
