Property Surveyors, sometimes referred to as land Surveyors, play a vital
role in the real estate world. They are the professionals who determine or
confirm the exact boundaries of a property.
Will you need to deal with a Property Surveyor when selling your home?
Sometimes the mortgage lender will ask for a land survey, especially if your
property is older and hasn’t changed hands in many years. You might also
be asked for one by the buyer if there is any confusion about the size and
boundaries of your property – or if significant changes have been made to it
in recent years.
This is nothing to be concerned about.
A qualified Property Surveyor will do the appropriate inspection and
measurements on your property and issue you the survey. (It looks a little
like a blueprint.)
Property Surveyors are highly trained and licensed. In the United States, the
profession is represented by the National Society of Professional Surveyors,
with each state having its own governing body. In Canada, Professional
Surveyors Canada (PSC) represents the profession nationally, and most
provinces have their own professional associations.
Before getting a new land survey, make sure you don’t already have one.
Hopefully, you’ve stored the paperwork that relates to the purchase of your
home. Look through it. A valid land survey might be right there.
