Certified Boundary Surveys - The property corners, whether a metes and bounds description or a platted subdivision, are marked or established based on the legal description of the property. Also included are the locating of improvements, locating encroachments from or onto neighboring parcels, and a certified drawing defining the results.
Mortgage Reports - Lending institutions and / or title companies often require mortgage reports during property transactions. The lender or Title Company provides a legal description of the property, and Farrier Surveying prepares a drawing showing the size, shape, and location of existing improvements relative to the recorded property dimensions. Boundary corners and property lines are not located during this process.
Sideline Staking - If considering fence installation, an addition to existing improvements, or if you simply need to know where your physical property line is.
House/Building Stakeout - Prior to construction, a house or other structure can be accurately staked on a parcel, with offsets, so that it is built in the correct position. This can be coordinated with the builder to make sure the necessary stakes are provided.
Elevation Survey - Sometimes required by lenders for property abutting water to meet FEMA flood insurance requirements. Elevation surveys refer to a variety of services that determine the elevations necessary for building setbacks and floodplain determinations.
Land division - Required when one piece of land is divided into two or more parcels. Drawings and parcel descriptions are prepared for the new parcel(s) and easement descriptions can also be included.
American Land Title Association (ALTA) Survey - For commercial properties, an ALTA survey (American Land Title Association) is requested to satisfy certain lending institution or title company requirements. It combines boundary surveys and mortgage reports to meet particular needs pertinent to title insurance matters.
