LAND SURVEYING AND THE LAND OWNER
Usually the need for a surveyor arises when one is buying property or a home, or when adding improvements to your land. These transactions represent large and important investments for you and your family so it is important to be well informed, which is the goal of this page.

HISTORICAL ROLE OF THE LAND SURVEYOR
As civilization has expanded and matured, the surveying profession has similarly kept pace with the need of society to define, delineate, and map the land and man improvements thereon. Today the Professional Land Surveyor is equipped with many sophisticated surveying tools and the specialized knowledge required to provide services for land owners, developers, industry, and government. Whether the project
be the layout of a new highway, bridge or dam, the precise location of offshore oil rigs, a municipality underground sewer lines, the establishment of international boundaries or a farm missing corners, the Professional Land Surveyor is called upon to perform his unique role knowing that future generations may rely on the quality of his work for centuries to come.

In New York and Pennsylvania an individual
may ONLY practice land surveying
if he is licensed and registered as a Professional Land Surveyor.


METHODS OF LAND SURVEYING
To a large degree the extent of urbanization and relative worth of the land determine the method of surveying most appropriate. The equipment used varies with the need and nature of a survey.



WHEN IS A SURVEY ADVISABLE

  1. BEFORE title in land is transferred. A survey assures the location of property boundaries and the accuracy and wording of legal descriptions.
  2. BEFORE land is subdivided by deed, will, or by the Court.
  3. BEFORE land is developed by the construction of buildings, roads, fences, etc.
  4. BEFORE an easement or right-of-way is created across the land.
  5. BEFORE a boundary dispute arises or when you believe someone is encroaching upon your land.
  6. BEFORE timber is to be cut and removed.
