As part of your real estate purchase, the property you’re buying will be surveyed. There are a few reasons you want to have this done.
First, a survey will establish the true boundaries of the property and where any buildings and improvements are located within those boundaries. A survey also identifies easements, encroachments, and other boundary issues with the property.
The survey will give you a lot of information about the property you want to purchase, and if there any discrepancies or problems with the survey, you will know about them in advance. This will let you work to resolve those problems before settlement.
