What is a Land Survey?

A land survey is a professional drawing that identifies property boundaries and provides the location of any structures located on the property. Land surveys are extremely important and a necessity for any land owner or prospective land owner. The land survey drawing will depict the four corners of the property and will be marked on the property by a licensed land surveyor. You will use the drawing document and physical markers on the property to establish your property lines or building site.

What to expect in a Land Survey from JSI

Every land survey should include property boundaries and the location of buildings, fences, and any existing improvements. It will also depict easements, a description from the property deed, and whether the land is considered in a floodplain.

Most land surveys will include an overview of bordering properties to make sure your property lines are defined correctly. This will eliminate future boundary disputes between landowners.
