Right-Of-Way Surveys

What Is a Right-Of-Way Survey

A right-of-way survey is a type of land survey used to determine the legal boundaries of a property and any rights of access or use associated with it. This type of survey is typically conducted when a road or other type of public access is being proposed, or when a potential buyer is considering purchasing a property. The survey will detail any existing easements, rights of access, and other restrictions that may affect the property.

Why Do I Need a Right-Of-Way Survey

Right-of-way surveys are important because they provide a detailed analysis of the boundaries of a property or section of land. This is especially important when determining if the land is suitable for a proposed construction project, such as a new road or pipeline. Knowing the exact property lines and potential obstacles helps to avoid costly delays and potential legal disputes. Right-of-way surveys also provide important information about the location of utility lines, which is critical for ensuring the safety of construction workers as well as the general public.

Right-Of-Way Survey Process

Right-of-way surveys must be conducted by licensed surveying professionals to accurately measure and map land boundaries. The survey will involve taking measurements from a series of points, usually marked by survey stakes, to create a map of the land. This map will be used to define the boundaries of a property. The surveyor will also look for evidence of any existing easements, encroachments, or other land usage to prevent potential disputes or legal issues.
