A boundary survey transfers property lines from a map or grants deed to the actual ground where you can see them. These are called “title lines” or in more simple terms what you really own. You need to know and see these lines so you can determine where to build and/or protect your property rights by viewing lines of occupation and possible encroachments.
A Boundary Survey should be performed before purchasing real estate to protect your investment, or before making any kind of improvements to your property by adding additions to your property, pools, fencing, extensive landscaping, etc.
A Topographical Survey is often requested by an engineer and architect who need to know information about the overall current existing conditions about the site grade and elevations. A Boundary Survey together with a Topographical Survey may be used to determine the placement of an architect’s building site plan or a civil engineer’s design of site improvements. Most contractors use Topographic surveys to estimate the volume of dirt quantities to be moved, or for many other construction and development purposes.
