The Importance of Survey’s in Real Estate Transactions

Surveys – What are they?

A land survey is a drawing or graphic representation of what a parcel of real estate is shaped like.  It is essentially a picture like a map outlining the properties legal boundaries, features and improvements on the property.  Usually, survey’s are required in real estate transactions in New York and they are a good idea to have.  They are prepared by professionals familiar with land records who actually physically inspect the property.

Surveys – How are they made?

Professional Surveyors physically go to the property that they are surveying and take detailed measurements of the property with special equipment. After they complete the field work they take that information back to the office and prepare the survey.

Here is a good article that provides more detailed information about the importance of surveys.
