How Does a Land Surveyor Help in Boundary Disputes?

November 18, 2020

When you save up the money to purchase your dream home, you undoubtedly have a lot of ideas. You picture family holidays, mowing the lawn, planting a garden and building memory after memory in your new home. What you probably don’t imagine is having a property dispute with any of the neighbors on either side of your property in Guadalupe County, TX.

Neighbors are often something of an afterthought for a homeowner. They’re just there when we arrive, and they might change a few times over the course of our time in the house. Sometimes we hit it off, and become great friends. That said, most people only want one thing from their neighbors: to keep to themselves. That’s why, for a lot of people, discovering that they’ve irritated their neighbor or finding that they’ve infringed on their property is one of the most uncomfortable situations they can find themselves in.

If you find yourself in a property dispute, don’t call a lawyer first. Instead, call a land surveyor for help with boundary dispute resolution.

When to call a surveyor

There are some situations that a land surveyor can’t help with. If your neighbor makes too much noise or their dogs visit your lawn to do their business, you might want to look elsewhere. If, however, they build on your side of the property or they have a tree that’s creeping onto your rooftop, then a land surveyor just might be the right person to help.

Word to the wise: If you’re planning to build anything on your property that might come somewhere close to its legal boundary, you should certainly invest the money in hiring a land surveyor. They will stake out the borders of your property, so there is no confusion between you, your builder and your neighbor. It could save you thousands of dollars and a lot of hassle, and it’s just the polite thing to do.

What a surveyor will do

If you find yourself searching for a boundary dispute resolution in Guadalupe County, TX, a property surveyor can quickly end the argument. First, talk to your neighbor (as calmly as possible) and see if you can come to some kind of agreement. If they agree, then a land surveyor can act as an intermediary who comes in and supplies an unbiased source of information.

In short, for one flat fee, a surveyor can come in and put your property’s boundaries in stark, undeniable relief.
