What is a commercial boundary survey?
Ordinary boundary surveys are the most common and basic survey available. They mark, measure and verify the boundary lines of a piece of line as the name implies. Besides the actual measuring of physical features, extensive research is conducted to find prior records such as title certificates, earlier surveys or land deeds. Some surveying companies like our will use GPS as well as drone technology to verify that the boundary lines match in the documents and the actual property. Once the research phase is completed the land surveyor will come to the property and take measurements, set markers and stakes and walk the property with you to identify the boundary lines. Any discrepancies will be identified.
Most land has already been surveyed before. However, the boundary lines can and do become confused with the passage of time. Physical changed in topography or encroachments by neighbors are some examples of things like usually lead to changes or confusion with the boundary lines. If these discrepancies are not identified before you purchase the property, your right to the title will be impacted if it ever comes up. Therefore, it’s very important to have a new commercial boundary survey performed rather than rely on the accuracy of previous surveys. Most lenders and title companies will require a commercial boundary survey before the sale closes for this very reason.
