What is a survey? – David Reecher
A survey refers to the process of locating and measuring a property’s boundary lines to determine the exact amount of land that a homeowner owns. A survey will also locate and measure any easements or encroachments on a property, which will be noted on a home’s chain of title. Buyers have a property surveyed after making an offer to make sure any issues with easements or encroachments are documented and resolved before closing.
