What is a Boundary Survey?
Boundary surveys are land surveys that include fieldwork and property record research to determine the legal boundaries of a parcel of land. Sometimes boundary surveys are required by mortgage lenders and title companies before they’ll agree to finance the property.
Some common reasons boundary surveys are required in Oakland include:
- Locating easements on private property
- Settling boundary line disputes
- Buying or splitting a property
- Building on or improving a property
- Determining zoning classification
- Establishing rights of way
- Updating an outdated property survey
Boundary surveys have two components. The first is measuring, mapping, and marking the boundaries of the land. The second component is researching the property’s historical records and other relevant documentation.
Sometimes there can be discrepancies between what the title says you own and the actual lines of occupation. A boundary survey can identify these issues. This can be especially important if you’re planning to build a permanent structure on the land, such as a pool or garage. If you don’t know where the true property line is, you may inadvertently build on land you don’t own. This can potentially lead to disputes and legal action.
What’s Included in a Boundary Survey?
Once the fieldwork and research are complete, the data is reconciled to create a plan, legal description, and report.
Your boundary survey may include the following:
- Lot dimensions as determined by the deed, survey drawings, and subdivision plats
- Existing easements
- Fences, which often aren’t built directly on the actual property lines
- Land improvements made by previous owners, such as sheds, garages, pools, or other permanent structures
