4 Parts Of A Good Land Survey

Land is considered the ultimate possession. The land that you own runs continuously into the land owned by your neighbors. With no marked boundaries, it can be challenging to determine exactly where your property ends and a neighbor's begins. Land surveys can be used to create a visual representation of your property boundaries for the purpose of obtaining a building permit, completing a sale, or resolving boundary conflicts. To accomplish these tasks, land surveys need to contain four essential components.

1. Access Points

A few different types of access points can exist on a piece of land. If a portion of your land has been used as a crossing for a significant period of time, a right of way could exist. Easements are similar to right of ways, but they are access points approved by the property owner. It's important to note the location of these access points so that anyone purchasing your property knows that other individuals will have access to a certain section of the land. This will eliminate conflicts in the future.

2. Dimensions

The dimensions of the property must be clearly listed on a land survey. Having the dimensions defined lets anyone who wants to measure boundary lines manually in the future do so accurately. Numerical dimensions can also serve as a constant measuring stick when property markers or monument locations change over time.

3. Written Description

In addition to a drawing of the parcel of land in question, each land survey will contain a written description. The description needs to reference the state, county, and township where the land is located. Information on the median, block, or subdivision lot should also appear in the written description. The written description is the official record. Any discrepancies between the drawing and the written description will be decided in favor of the information included in the written description.

4. Improvements

Another important component of a land survey is a complete listing of all improvements made to the property. Improvements can include a home, barn, garage, or shed that has been constructed on the land itself. Improvements will be represented on the land survey drawing, with the identify their location in relation to the property lines clearly shown. Having the improvements included in the land survey allows the survey to be utilized for appraisals, real estate transactions, and other tasks that require the accurate valuation of a parcel of land.
