• Land surveying is a profession that requires technical skills, legal knowledge, and specialized equipment. You may employ a land surveyor only once or twice in a lifetime and not be aware of the steps necessary to select a land surveyor. The surveyor creates maps for architects, engineers, landscapers, and urban planners for use in designing houses, shopping centers, recreational areas, etc. A licensed land surveyor should be employed:

    • Prior to construction of a structure
    • Prior to any improvements on property
    • When subdividing parcels of land
    • When purchasing real estate

    The services of a professional land surveyor can prevent the worry and expense of moving a structure or defending a lawsuit. The land surveyor and lawyer work as a team in resolving property disputes.
