Five Advantages of Land Surveying

Five Advantages of Land Surveying

January 19, 2023

When you buy a piece of land, you want to be certain the land is a sound investment and is suitable for your goals. Having as much information as possible ensures you make an informed choice when considering buying a piece of land. Any unforeseen or unknown issue can prove quite costly. A land surveyor can provide useful information so that you know the land you are purchasing can be properly developed. There are many benefits of land survey services, and here are five to consider.

Five Advantages of Land Surveying

  1. Boundary Clarification: One of the advantages of land surveying is it avoids any possible boundary disputes. When a boundary is not clearly defined, this can lead to ownership disputes that can delay project completion. This can be both time-consuming and costly. In some boundary disputes, court cases have resulted. By having the land surveyed, you know exactly where your property ends.
  2. Receiving a Proper Land Valuation: Having more information can improve your bargaining position when negotiating a purchase. A surveyor may discover problems with the land or other issues that negatively impact its value. This can help you buy a piece of property at a lower price and also ensures you are paying a fair price as well.
  3. Detecting Environmental Issues: Environmental issues must be correctly identified before purchasing any land. These issues can include flooding when it rains, erosion, and various other issues. What makes environmental issues a problem is that they can negatively impact how you want to (and can) use a property.
  4. Discovery of Easements: An easement is an agreement between a property owner and another party that allows the use of a part of a piece of property for an agreed-upon fee. One of the most common types of easements is those involving power companies paying fees to use the land for power lines or pipes. When a property is sold, easements can be transferred as part of the sale. Easements may provide an additional income stream. However, they can limit land use and how you can develop it, so it’s good to know in advance about these agreements.
  5. Knowing Wear To Build: A land survey can also tell you the best part of the property to start construction on. Surveying can tell you about the topography, terrain, and where utilities are located. This allows you to pinpoint the best place to start building.

When making a large purchase, you shouldn’t complete the purchase before having an inspection, including land. A land survey can provide vital information to make the best choice possible.
