Residential Construction Surveys

What Is a Residential Construction Survey

A residential construction survey is a type of property survey conducted by a licensed surveyor to determine the exact position, boundaries, and features of a residential building site prior to construction. This helps to ensure that the construction project is done correctly and without any issues related to boundaries or other potentially obstructive topographical features. The surveyor will use a variety of tools to measure and map the site, including laser measuring instruments, GPS receivers, and total stations. The surveyor will also analyze existing maps and records to ensure accuracy.

Why Do I Need a Residential Construction Survey

Residential construction surveys are important because they protect property owners from legal issues by providing a view of the overall quality of the construction and potential safety hazards. Property owners can prevent potential safety or legal disputes by ensuring that the building meets safety regulations. Residential construction surveys are an essential tool for ensuring that residential construction is safe and up to code.

Residential Construction Survey Process

Residential construction surveys are conducted by a licensed land surveyor. The surveyor will first review existing records of the property, such as previously conducted surveys and property titles. The surveyor will then measure the boundaries of the property and plot all topographical features and man-made structures of the property on a map. Details about the property and its features will be described, and the map will be given to the property owner once completed.
